a Father's Heart
do grieve following abortion, but they are more likely
to deny their grief…rather than openly express
it…When men do express their grief, they try to
do so in culturally prescribed “masculine”
ways, for example anger, aggressiveness, control. Men
typically grieve in a private way following an abortion…A
guilt-ridden, tormented male does not easily love or
accept love…his denial of himself and his relentless
feelings of post-abortion emptiness can nullify even
the best of intentions.” Vincent Rue, The Effects
of Abortion on Men, Ethics and medics 21 (4):3, 1996.

who have fathered children who were aborted commonly
experience stress. Through denial, some men block the
natural process of grieving and dealing with the death
of their unborn children.
symptoms of stress caused by abortion are:

rage, and often abusive behavior
to bond with children and/or your mate
bad dreams, nightmares
of confidence or unexplainable anxieties
fear of failure, or fear of rejection
dysfunctions/worry over manhood
of men have lost children by abortion. Don’t allow
lost fatherhood to remain a hidden experience governed
by shame, guilt and thoughts of “what might have
been”. The connection between the abortion and
your pain is real.
Thru the study, it is possible for men to be released
from the harmful consequences of a past abortion and
to experience peace and healing. In small, confidential
groups, men acknowledge and face their inner turmoil
about their abortion experience and look at ways to
heal from the negative aspects of their experience.
This study brings freedom and peace whether it has been
one year or fifty years since your abortion. This all
takes place in a confidential environment.
