Secret Sin: When God's People Choose Abortion was written because abortion is one of the last great secret sins that remains?
And because the Church hasn't been aware of the magnitude of this secret sin or how it affects those it touches, the Church has done little or nothing to help these people suffering silently in their midst to find healing in Christ.

The denial of the scientific fact that a tiny person—their own child—was destroyed during the abortion procedure, a denial which permitted them to submit to the abortion when it happened, has crumbled over time.
They have been left to confront the unspeakable horror of what has truly happened and their own responsibility for it every day and every night, perhaps for years. Doctors prescribe sleeping pills and antidepressants, or anti-anxiety medications without probing for the root cause of the symptoms. Psychosomatic illnesses, eating disorders, substance abuse, failed interpersonal relationships, inability to concentrate on school or work, or suicide attempts bring women who have had abortions to endless health care workers and counselors without relief.
At last here is someone who understands the enormity of the problem! In fact the Catholic Church is perhaps the only institution which has never minimalized the grave sin which is abortion. And yet, the Pope is saying, "Do not give in to discouragement, and do not lose hope. Try rather to understand what happened and face it honestly. If you have not already done so, give yourselves over with humility and trust to repentance.
Coming to grips with my abortion
The Father of mercies is ready to give you His forgiveness and His peace in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Women who have had abortions commonly believe that they have committed "the unforgivable sin. Those who have heard about the penalty of excommunication presume they have incurred it, and that it is irrevocable. Some long to go to Mass and receive the Sacraments, but are convinced that this can never again be possible for them, and never dare even to enter a Catholic church again.
Others, equally sure that they have been permanently excluded from valid reception of Holy Communion and the other Sacraments, keep up a charade of participating in these and other parish activities for fear of giving scandal or of alienation from family and friends if they did not. They find themselves sinking deeper and deeper into despair because of repeated sacrilegious reception of the sacraments and duplicity known only to themselves. Each religious holiday, each wedding, baptism, first Holy Communion, Confirmation, or funeral in the family throws the problem into sharp focus, and no solution seems possible.
Profoundly sorry for what they have done, they may have given up hope of ever finding forgiveness and achieving eternal salvation. For all of these women, the "Good News"—that the Catholic Church forgives abortion, and that the Pope is reaching out to them with an invitation to "come home" and be reconciled with God and return to full communion with their fellow Catholics—is truly astounding!
The penalty of excommunication, if it has been incurred, can and will be lifted. Advertisements for Project Rachel—an outreach program to women and men who have suffered the tragedy of abortion, which is now available in well over U. Some would say that the guilt which Roman Catholic women feel after an abortion is "Catholic guilt," implying that if the Church did not speak so strongly against abortion these women would not suffer from a lifetime of guilt.
All to the contrary, Catholic women, and only Catholic women, after hearing the sin of abortion named in all its ugliness, are offered the Sacrament of Reconciliation, where they hear the priest say, in the name of Christ, "I absolve you of your sins. Go in peace. You will come to understand that nothing is definitively lost and you will also be able to ask forgiveness from your child, who is now living in the Lord. How beautiful and consoling these words are to a woman whose child has been destroyed by abortion and who believes that the baby is lost forever!
In her new state of reconciliation with God and the Church she is also now "living in the Lord" and, therefore, able to communicate with her child, in God, through the Communion of the Saints. The Holy Father is inviting her to ask her son or daughter to forgive her, which perhaps she has already done a thousand times in her heart.
Now, for the first time, however, she is assured of real communication with her child and of eventual reunion in heaven. Many mothers of aborted children have developed mental pictures of their daughters and sons, have named them, and some have even watched them grow through the years in their imaginations. Now they have the assurance of the Pope that their children really do exist and that they are with the Lord.
Witnessing to the Sanctity of Human Life, Through Education, Based on the Word of God
Their babies left this earth in total innocence and they now cannot be suffering in any way. While continuing to suffer the sorrow of loss, many mothers turn to their children as intercessors before God for large and small needs in life, for themselves and for others. With the friendly and expert help and advice of other people, and as a result of your own painful experience, you can become the most eloquent defenders of everyone's right to life. The love with which the Holy Father reaches out to a women who has had an abortion, and the unconditional love with which the Church and pro-life community surround her, may be her first experience of true Christian charity.
If her wounded life is so profoundly valued and cherished, she can begin to perceive herself as having dignity and worth as a person. She comes to understand that every human person has the same dignity and value—each and every one has been purchased with the blood of Jesus Christ. Her profound suffering has taught her that abortion is not a solution to the problem of an untimely pregnancy, but rather a transformation of a temporary problem into a potentially life-long tragedy.
Some women who have had abortions—very few— will choose to speak out about their painful experience so as to help others not to make the same mistake.
