When the Crying Stops – Abortion: The Pain and the Healing
Written by Kathleen Winkler with meditations by the Rev. Dr. Harold L. Senkbeil, this book includes stories of 19 post-abortive women who recall their abortion experiences. The stories contain remembering, remorse, and regret. The author tells stories of how repentance happened, forgiveness was found, and the crying stopped.
Each reason for choosing abortion is unique. Yet one thread runs through many women’s stories — insecurity. That thread is often tangled with the threads of alcohol or drug abuse. Katie’s story is shot through with all those threads. Years later, she had to confront what she had done.
