Women Hurt launches billboard campaign about abortion

 A new group called Women Hurt has launched a nationwide billboard campaign in Ireland to reach out to women suffering from the after-effects of abortion. The group consists of women who experienced abortion and regret the decision but have found hope, help and healing over time.
Bernadette Goulding, spokesperson for the group said:

My hope is that by sharing my story, it will help someone who is suffering in silence, to know that there is hope and there is healing. Women Hurt wishes to break silence surrounding the suffering some women endure after abortion. Our group has the support of countless women who have been through the experience of abortion and feel that the views of women who regret the decision have not been properly aired.
Lynn Coles, who is also a spokesperson for the group said:
We are women who regret the decision to opt for abortion but over time have found healing. We wish to reach out to women in similar situations to let them know that they are not alone. The purpose of the group is not to engage in counselling but to share our stories and make women aware of the professional help that is available to them.
The nationwide billboard campaign which began last Monday will run for two weeks.

Lynn and Bernadette are available for interview this week. For more information contact Nora at 087-4134888.
