After the Choice


“I have decided, notwithstanding anything to the contrary, to concede to all priests for the Jubilee Year the discretion to absolve of the sin of abortion those who have procured it and who, with contrite heart, seek forgiveness for it.” Pope Francis.

How often do we hear: “I have committed an unforgivable sin” when people talk about a past abortion? After the Choice Ministry provides a safe place where women and men can encounter God’s healing grace through counseling, retreats and support groups in English and Spanish.

If you have a personal experience with abortion, please take a moment to watch this video and allow the healing to begin.
