“My own abortion haunts me yet, but in those moments of sadness, I have most often found a way to let myself be carried to deep reflection and remember your ever constant reminders of mercy. Almost every time I have heard you, or read anything you write, you are so clear about mercy. Thus, despite time limitations and life stresses, my healing continues, and most times now I choose mercy when darkness calls.” Mary Ellen
A ray of light in abortion’s darkness!
Living with the pain of abortion can be overwhelming. Feelings of anxiety, panic, grief, guilt and shame can often seem insurmountable, but there is a way out of the pain. You do not have to suffer alone! Countless women and men have reached healing through Lumina’s services, which include group programs, referrals to professional therapists and post-abortion ministries.
We also conduct retreats for women, men, siblings and those who aborted because of an adverse diagnosis. In addition, we provide trainings for clergy members and mental health professionals in post abortion stress.
Lumina has a network of women and men who have walked through the pain of abortion who are also ready to accompany you through the darkness, into the joy of a renewed life.
We know that no matter what your beliefs you can experience many conflicting emotions, if you, or someone close to you has had an abortion.
We also recognize the resistance of society to acknowledge these feelings, the result of which is suppressed emotions with nowhere to turn and a feeling of being crazy and different from others. There is Hope!

” I thought I was crazy. I seemed to be the only one who was having trouble with my abortion. Now I know I am not alone. It is such a relief to know that others are experiencing the same things I am going through, the grief, shame, and guilt. I always thought I was the only one feeling those things. I have hope for the first time.” Kathy
