Many ways to heal after abortion Print
Letters to the editor

To the editor:

Thank you for spreading the word abut the Memorial Statue in Resurrection Ceremony.

What a powerful, beautiful way to invite those who have lost unborn children in a variety of tragic manners to privately pray, grieve, and remember their children.

I would also like to salute Mary Mead who has spent several decades being a true ambassador of Christ's love to these women and men.

About half of women who have abortions have had a previous abortion.

The wounds run deep and the issues driving them to this deadly decision are often cyclical.

The healing power of Christ -- manifested by Christ's suffering, the sacraments of His Church, and the witness and support of those of us committed to the pro-life movement -- can break this cycle once and for all.

Thank you to Mary, the benefactors, and the diocese for making this memorial a reality.

May it serve as constant witness to the walking wounded who grieve the loss of their children, created in the image and likeness of God.

And may this painful reality help us all recommit to ending abortion through passionately peaceful, compassionate action.

Greg Chesmore, Madison
