"The church is aware of the many factors which may have influenced your decision, and she does not doubt that in many cases it was a painful and even shattering decision." There is hope and healing after an abortion experience. We are here for you! Please visit the Respect Life website for support including "Project Rachel."
Project Rachel is one of the many support groups to begin the healing process. Project Rachel ministry operates through the Respect Life Office of the Archdiocese of Miami. It is a network of lay personnel, lay volunteers, priests, deacons, and licensed counselors who provide one-on-one spiritual and psychological support for those who are suffering from the trauma of an abortion. You can also call 954-981-2922 for more details on Project Rachel and other support.
Project Joseph is an Archdiocesan services and formation program for men facing crisis pregnancies. It is run by men for men. The mentors are volunteers from the community and there is no charge for their services.
Fathers may attend an entire program consisting of Becoming A Better Man, Parenting and Future Planning. Fathers also receive education and support in other areas of fatherhood such as community resources, behavior management, faith and parenting, and much more.

Be a Sidewalk Advocate and be the "hands and feet of Christ," offering loving, life-affirming alternatives to all present at the abortion center, thereby eliminating demand and ending abortion. Sidewalk Advocates for Life take a peaceful, prayerful, law-abiding approach to reaching out to those who may feel they have no choice. Crisis intervention on the sidewalk is provided to women in unplanned pregnancies headed into the abortion center, recognizing that the outreach can only go so far. For more information on how to become a Sidewalk Advocate, contact Angela Curatalo.
It's Time to Overturn Roe v. Wade
The Supreme Court heard oral arguments on December 1st for the biggest abortion case in decades. The case before the nation's highest court, Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, is an appeal from Mississippi to keep its ban on abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy.
Because of Roe v. Wade and Casey v. Planned Parenthood, we live in a nation where abortion laws are among the most liberal among the Western democracies. It is time to overturn Roe v. Wade and the 1992 ruling, Casey v. Planned Parenthood, that compounded the error or Roe.

ROE V. WADE
Congress is trying to force Americans to pay for abortions. It is critically important for Catholics to send a strong message before Congress moves forward to impose taxpayer funded abortions. Tell Congress not to take innocent lives by signing a petition.
THE HYDE AMENDMENT
The Hyde Amendment has protected Americans from funding abortion for 45 years. It's credited with saving the lives of over 2.4 million children to date. Now, members of Congress want to take away this law which will enable billions of taxpayer dollars to go to paying for abortions. Please sign the petition below telling Congress not to use taxpayer money to fund abortions.
