ABOUT PROJECT RACHEL
Healing from an abortion is often a long process. The experience is horrific, and the societal message to deny the pain is so strong that some women take extraordinary measures to avoid dealing with the trauma. The typical participant attends a support group, follow-up group sessions and two retreats for one or more years. Each retreat in the Raleigh Diocese is attended by approximately 20 – 40 women and men who are 25 – 65 years of age. 75% of participants are Catholic, representing more than 2 dozen parishes throughout the Diocese. The Benefit for Life provides 80 percent of the revenue for Project Rachel.
