Lord, forgive and heal the deep emotional, physical and spiritual wounds of women who have had abortions. Pour the healing power of Your love into their hearts so that they may seek and accept Your forgiveness.

God of mercy, be especially merciful to them, for so often they did not know the wrong they were doing. Lead them to those who will help them.

Help all of us who have had the grace to recognize the evil in abortion never to turn away from those who have experienced its harm.

Let us always reach out to them in love.
