A Grief that can't be Spoken

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Editorial Columnist Patrick McIlheran writes a thought-provoking, revealing and heart-wrenching piece in the Sunday, February 22, paper. McIleran interviews a woman who tells how a miscarriage at 10 weeks not only changed her mind about her abortion years earlier, but explained why, in the years since having had an abortion, she suffered from "depression, nightmares" and "suicidal thoughts."

Praise God that one of the ways she found help is in a Bible study for women who have had abortions, and that she is now willing to speak honestly on abortion, all politics aside. More and more women are coming forward to share the reality of their abortion experience. As McIlheran says, "this is controversial." But as we read the column, we find out that for this and many other women, it is also the truth.

"Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you..." Psalm 55:22
