From the Publisher
"Forbidden Grief" is a compelling review of Dr. Theresa Burke's experience in counseling hundreds of women for abortion-related emotional difficulties. Dr. Burke exposes the obstacles in the way of post-abortion healing, reviews the full range and depth of post-abortion adjustment problems, and illustrates how we can create a more understanding and healing society where women will no longer be required to hide their pain.
