Update: Theresa Burke, founder of Rachel's Vineyard Ministries and co-author with Dr. David Reardon, of the book, Forbidden Grief: The Unspoken Pain of Abortion, just emailed me that there are about 350 Rachel's Vineyard retreats worldwide this year alone. At least 140 locations throughout every state in the U.S., plus multiple locations in Canada, Africa, Australia, Chile, Ireland, Mexico, New Zealand, Portugal and Russia. Each in their native languages.

Less than two years ago when I went, there were only about 100 retreats worldwide. That number has more than tripled in two years.

350 retreats worldwide. 10-20+ women (and even some men), confidentially attending each one, this year alone. 3,500+ people starting to find healing from the pain of their abortions, this year.

3,500+ more next year. And the year after that. And the year after that...And so on. And that's just one of many ministries like it, as Emily has linked to on the right side of this blog since the start.

So much for us "making up a syndrome that [we] call 'post-abortion syndrome.'"
