With all of the focus that we pro-lifers have concerning abortion, often we overlook the issue of miscarriages. Miscarriages happen to many women, and it always causes lasting emotional pain. Whenever we talk to a woman who is just experienced a miscarriage, we console and say how sorry we are. However, the memory and emotion of that loss often remain for a very long time.
Women who have experienced a miscarriage need more than just a single I’m sorry . Many of these women will continue to grieve , especially on the anniversary of the child’s passing or the child’s expected birthday. Those who are close to such women should allow those women to talk about the miscarriages, even years after the actual event. We should allow them to grieve. We should pray for them.
