Letter to a woman who had an abortion

First of all I regret very much what happened to you when you rejected the gift of life committing the sin of abortion, I unite myself to your suffering and I pray for your spiritual healing. 

Whatever was done can not be undone, fortunately God is merciful and forgives us so that we can carry on with our lives.

In order to experience the forgiveness of your sin, you must have a confession with a priest and if it necessary, you must re-confess with pain of having offended God who is the Author of Life.

To err is human, to forgive is divine. God has forgiven you, with the death of his Son Jesus on the cross, your son or daughter has forgiven you too, since he or she is in the Peace of the Lord. Now your must  complete the process of healing by forgiving yourself.

We are all sinners and Jesus rejected the crowd who wanted to stone to death the adulteress woman, he said to them: "Let him who is free from sin, be the one to cast the first stone". He also said, "Do not judge and you shall not be judged" . God has forgiven you, then, now, do not continue judging and condemning yourself for the sin that God has already forgiven you. 

I suggest that you pray to the Virgin of Guadalupe since She is the Patroness of the unborn. She will help you to find peace. Bless your child and baptize it spiritually with your faith in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. 

Never mistrust the Mercy of God. God loves us. May the Lord bless you and keep you, and give you the peace and courage to carry get on with your life.

In so far as your own self forgiveness, you must make mental exercises or affirmations in which you talk to yourself saying for example:

I have sinned, and what I have done is wrong. However God is all Love and Mercy, he has forgiven all my sins with his death on the cross. I am myself at peace with God, now I want to be at peace with myself. 

God has said, forgive and you shall be forgiven, so in the name of Jesus I forgive myself. And as a child falls in order to learn how to stand firm and support himself, I also have fallen and have learned from my fall. Now I recognize the evil of sin and I respect God more. This fall has helped me to begin a new life with more holy fear of God and with more appreciation for life.
This fall helps me to pray for other women so that they won't fall in the same trap. It teaches me to give counsel to those that God will introduce to me and to prevent them from this damage to their lives. It also helps me to help others who are suffering the pain of the trauma of abortion and its moral and spiritual consequences.

Thanks be to God for the gift of forgiveness. Thank you Lord for healing me and cleansing me with the Precious Blood of Jesus.

Prayer of repentance for having destroyed life
>>>

Heavenly Father, Almighty God. I humble myself before your Presence.

Father of life, Father of all spirits. I have sinned against you, I have broken your commandment that says "You shall not kill"

I repent of my crime, I admit my guilt and I ask you to forgive me. You have said an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth and a life for a life [Leviticus 24:17-21]; if you look at my iniquities I will be lost forever, but with you is found mercy and love [Psalm 130:2-3].

Lord have mercy on me, a sinner.

Lord you have appointed repentance for the forgiveness of sins , you have given power to your Church to forgive sins. I promise to confess my sins to a Catholic priest and I beg you to heal the wounds of my soul.

Heal me Oh Lord, purify me from all my iniquities. Precious Blood of Jesus cover me, I have shed human blood, I have destroyed life and you are life, now I beg you Lord by the power of your Precious Blood that you forgive me and deliver me from my iniquities.

Blessed Mother Mary, Virgin mother of all the living, mother of life, I am your child, forgive me my sins and pray for me, take me into the refuge of your Immaculate Heart and help me to live God's commandments.

Mother Mary you are the mother of that human being that I rejected, I entrust it to you and to your Son my Lord Jesus Christ. Pray for us O Holy Mother of God that we may be worthy of the promises of Christ. Amen.

Text  from "The Gospel of Life, Evangelium Vitae " 
By the Holy Father, John Paul II 

I would like to say a special word, to women who have had an abortion. The Church is aware of the many factors which may have influenced your decision, and she does not doubt that in many cases it was a painful and even shattering decision. The wound in your heart may not yet have healed. Certainly what happened was and remain terribly wrong. But do not give into discouragement and do not lose hope. Try rather to understand what happened and face it honestly. If you have not already done so, give yourself over with humility and trust to repentance. 
The Father of Mercies is ready to give you his forgiveness and his peace in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. 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. With the friendly and expert help and advise of other people, and as a result of your own painful experience, you can be among the most eloquent defenders of everyone's right to life. Through your commitment to life, whereby accepting the birth of other children or by welcoming and caring for those most in need of someone to be close to them, you will become promoters of a new way of looking at human life.  

John Paul II
