I cannot express how much help I have needed since my abortion that happend two and a half years ago. I still have not completely healed and probably never will, it is something I have to live with forever. I read this book and it gave me assurance of Gods love and forgiveness that helps me get through each day I live. I don't go one day without loving my unborn child. It wasn't my choice, but I was pursuaded by my boyfriend who didn't stay around.

Surgery is traumatic on the body and the mind for many reasons, and the surgery of abortion can often be doubly traumatic. Often the depression and guilt that can go along with this "minor" surgery goes overlooked. Many Christian women live with that guilt and feel that the act was an unforgivable shame and blot on their lives. But they are wrong. Condemnation does not come from Christ. Healing does, and this book will help many Christian women find it as they draw closer to HIM.

The hot topic these days for those interested in the abortion debate is "post-abortion healing." And for good reason. According to Planned Parenthood's research department some 43 percent of women will have had an abortion by the time they reach 45 years of age. And who better to help women find hope and healing than two who have experienced the tragedy of abortion themselves.
Synda Masse and Joan Phillips, the authors of Her Choice to Heal: Finding Spiritual and Emotional Peace After Abortion, are leading the charge to provide women with spiritual renewal following abortion. Their recently-published book is an excellent guide for women seeking to accept forgiveness and reconcile with God.
Masse and Phillips have written Her Choice to Heal in a workbook style that combines helpful advice and choice Biblical passages with writing spaces where a woman can reflect on her own abortion situation and what she's read.
Speaking about women beginning to come to grips with their abortion, they write, "For months and even years, the only apparent truth is that she made the right decision for that time in her life." Yet women eventually find themselves with overwhelming feelings of denial, anger and tremendous guilt. Her Choice to Heal addresses each of these feelings in various chapters.
Masse and Phillips are intimately familiar with abortion decisions. Both are former leaders of the Crisis Pregnancy outreach of Focus on the Family and have previously suffered from abortion's lasting effects.
Despite attending a "private Christian college," Sydna Masse found herself pregnant.

This book was the first book I read about women suffering with past abortions. I suffered in silence for over 20 years and after the birth of my son, my suffering became even more intense as I went through all his "firsts" and came face to face with my loss. When I finally had the courage to tell someone my "secret" I was told about this book. It was the first step to healing. Two years ago I attended a post abortion healing group which has helped tremendously. There are so many women suffering from past abortions. If you are suffering in silence there are many resources for you to help you get the courage to find healing.

I read this book several years after going through the Bible study entitled "Forgiven and Set Free" by Linda Cochrane. Its contents reflect the content of the Bible study closely, with personal testimonies from the authors interwoven through the chapters. I counsel women who are struggling with the emotional aftermath of abortion, and I reccommend they read it before beginning the aforementioned Bible study with me. I suppose that neither this book, nor the Bible study, would be extremely helpful if a woman does not consider herself a Christian, since they both address the issue from a Christian, biblical perspective. But it is possible, I suppose, to find some measure of comfort in the knowledge that there are others who understand and share your painful experiences. Our grief, guilt, regret, and shame can be common denominators regardless of our faith or lack therof. Therefore, I highly recommend this book for any woman who is struggling with her feelings connected to a past abortion.

After reading Sydna Masse's book Her Choice to Heal I couldn't help but reflect on the fact that when one is forgiven much through the redemptive work of Christ, one desires to do much for the kingdom in return. Author Masse's life displays the grace of God she experienced after having had a traumatic abortion. She is real and very transparent and will walk you through her journey in an effort to ultimately provide healing and hope to your heart. This book is for individuals that know others suffering from the trauma of abortion or for those that have personally had an abortion and need healing strategies.

The author confesses the reality that most following an abortion will suffer deeply and silently from post- abortion syndrome (PAS)and shares the following:"Though women seek out abortion as a solution to stressful circumstances, abortion itself can become a contributor to long-lasting stress of a different kind.". Though some may confess to family and friends, others do not confess, withdraw into themselves, and trust no one.

You may find yourself identifying with some of the root causes leading to an abortion such as a parent having an affair, marital breakup resulting, and then rejection occurring by a parent regarding yourself. This book examines some characteristics of post-abortive women while providing remedies to heal one's heart. Here you will find strategies to address unresolved anger, questions you should contemplate if you feel called to speak publicly and how you can memorialize your aborted child.

Overall, it is a positive book filled with hope in allowing one to realize that your sin is redeemable. She shares the following with us: "God sees all sin equally- no one worse than another.
