MADISON -- Every year men and women suffer from the after-effects of abortion, including eating disorders, depression, and drug and alcohol abuse.

Rachel's Vineyard weekend retreats provide an opportunity for healing for any person who has struggled with the emotional or spiritual pain of abortion.

The retreat weekend is a process designed to help participants experience the mercy and compassion of God. It is also an opportunity to surface and release repressed feelings of anger, shame, guilt, and grief.

Each weekend is run by volunteers who care deeply about those attending the retreat. Many facilitators have suffered the same loss.

A Rachel's Vineyard retreat will be held in Madison on November 13 to 15.
