Abortion Recovery Awareness Month Founder Speaks Out
April 12, 2010
MEDIA ADVISORY, (christiansunite.com) -- Stacy Massey is excited to hear the "buzz" regarding Abortion Recovery Awareness Month go around the globe.
"Back in 2005 when Christine Jackman and I founded Abortion Recovery Awareness Month... we had no idea that so many people would wish to be involved. It's such a blessing to see Christians reaching out to those hurting and provide healing resources for women and men impacted by an abortion experience. Each one abortion, through a ripple effect, can touch the hearts of 40-50 people. That's a lot of pain for individuals and families!"
Abortion Recovery Awareness Month (ARAM) was established in April 2005 by Abortion Recovery InterNational, Inc. (ARIN) as a community event for their Affiliates. The month has two goals:
1) to encourage and extend healing opportunities to those hurting after an abortion.
2) to enlighten society to the effects of abortion on individuals and families.
Co-founders Stacy Massey and Christine Jackman believed abortion recovery was just as significant as other awareness efforts.
During the month of April, ARIN Affiliates and Advocates enlighten society by reaching out to others in their community through many different venue.
An Abortion Recovery Awareness Calendar for the month of April is established each year providing ideas and resources.
Abortion Recovery Awareness Month is secular-friendly. It is free of condemnation, judgment or negative connotations.
