Abortion continues to be a hot topic in politics, women’s rights, and medical practice. But for the eight to ten million American Christian women who have had one, abortion is a spiritual issue as well, raising questions of life and death, heaven and hell, grief and loss.
Writing from her own experience, Kim Ketola sheds light on one of the darkest and most neglected personal issues of our time: the widespread need for healing and spiritual recovery after abortion. “After abortion brought the worst trouble into my life I had ever known,” writes Ketola, “I just couldn’t see my way free to believe in God’s love.”
With a compassionate heart, Ketola offers ten true stories of healing promise from the Bible to help women answer the most common spiritual torments they face: Is abortion a sin? Does God hate me? Where can I turn in my shame and distress? How could I ever tell anyone the truth? And more.
Inspired by Romans 6:4–“just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life”–this is a definitive resource to help women see themselves and God anew and–finally–to find spiritual healing.

Abortion is such a hot topic that you never know if it is okay to talk about it in a group of people! People feel so passionately one way or the other. Women do not talk about the “after effects” of making a decision to abort a baby… grief, sadness, regret, and loss of God’s Love. This book is a great tool for women who have had to make an impossible decision and learn to accept God into their lives again and LOVE. Ketola ask key questions that creates the inner dialogue to forgiveness and creates a place where there are no political views, only a path to healing. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who has experienced abortion or the loss of a child.
