British Victims of Abortion inundated with letters from postabortion women

Pro-life activists Melanie Symonds and Phyllis Bowman from British Victims of Abortions (BVA),  write:

“The plan has always been ultimately to provide a national telephone helpline along with one-to-one counseling with group backup. Another area which opened up was the opportunity to participate in media chat shows and contribute to magazine articles. Each time we had any coverage and described abortion damage, we were inundated with either telephone calls or letters requesting more information and help. This again reinforced our belief in the extent of damage women were suffering…

If the condition is not understood or even acknowledged, how on earth can the problem be addressed and women helped to come to terms with their loss and pain?”

if women weren’t sometimes traumatized by their abortions, there would be no need for groups like this.
