A national post-abortion hotline!
On my recent travels, I was so glad to have the opportunity to meet Millie Lace, a woman who has started a national abortion recovery hotline. As we have discussed on this blog before, up until now, there has been no 24/7 post-abortion hotline. There are quite a few toll-free hotlines that are operated by specific post-abortion ministries, such as the 1-877-HOPE-4-ME Rachel's Vineyard number and the 1-800-5WE-CARE Project Rachel hotline and the 1-800-395-HELP line. But...none of them fit the bill of a 24/7 hotline just for people who want and need to talk about their experiences with abortion, and who can refer you to lots of different kinds of resources.
Best of all, the hotline is exclusively staffed by women who have themselves had an abortion. As it says on the card, "talk to a trained consultant who has also experienced the pain of abortion, but has found hope and healing. All calls are free and confidential."
Not only does this number exist, but it has been up-and-running for over a year.
So...naturally, we urge you, our readers, to call this number and let us know how the call goes. Millie knows that we are going to start giving out the number on this blog, and that we have readers with many different perspectives and backgrounds.
