As well, we must always remember that when an abortion occurs, others involved suffer as well, especially mothers and fathers who discover that the abortion is not a solution, but something that causes them great personal difficulty. Please click on the following link to find out more on this important topic from the Canadian Organization for Life and Family - English and in French. Please remember too that if you are in need of support because of a past abortion, help is just a phone call away. Call our Project Rachel confidential help line at 905-526-1999, or 1-888-385-3850.
