FORGIVEN AND FREE - Choices Women’s Clinic will be offering a 9-week class, Forgiven and Free Abortion Recovery, beginning on January 11th, 10 am – 12 noon.  Research shows that abortion can have long and potentially devastating effects on women and their relationships, sometimes manifesting many years after the fact.  If you, or someone you know, could benefit from the healing and freedom offered post-abortion (no matter how long ago), contact Sandy at Choices (407.277.5527 ext 3070) to register for this class.
