It’s a call for help Betsy Kopor never tires of answering. At least 400 times a year, women suffering from post-abortion trauma phone her Rachel Ministries office hoping to find forgiveness and peace. “I hear the pain they have been living with for years,” says Kopor, who founded the ministry in 2001. “Most of the people who call had an abortion five to seven years ago. They tried to live with it, and get past it, but couldn’t.”
We need the help of God in our lives — especially his Holy Spirit — to make decision that are ultimately good, noble, and just.”
Maria’s eyes moistened at the mere mention of the baby she lost more than 15 years ago. Despite giving birth to seven other children, the Our Lady of Guadalupe parishioner still mourns the loss of that one soul.
