Rachel's Vineyard weekends for healing after abortion are offered throughout the year in locations across
the United States and Canada, with additional sites around the world. Rachelís Vineyard is a ministry of
Priests for Life
The program is an opportunity to examine your abortion experience, identify the ways that the loss has
impacted you in the past and present, and helps to acknowledge any unresolved feelings that many individuals
struggle with after abortion. Because of the emotional numbness and secrecy that often surrounds an abortion
experience, conflicting emotions both during and after the event may remain unresolved. These buried feelings
can surface later and may be symptoms of post-abortion trauma.
Married couples, mothers, fathers, grandparents and siblings of aborted children, as well as persons who have
been involved in the abortion industry have come to Rachel's Vineyard in search of peace and inner healing.
The weekend is a lot of work but yields a fruitful harvest for all who are willing to labor there.
