This is the only book written specifically for men who have been hurt by a personal abortion experience. It is based on research carried out by the author in which a program for post-abortion men was developed, tested, and found to be effective. The book focuses on specific problems which may be experienced by post-abortion men including anger, helplessness, guilt, relationship problems, and grief. The steps of the healing process are described in terms of each of these problems. While the book was written primarily for post-abortion men, their families, friends, and those who counsel them may also find it to be useful.

Catherine T. Coyle earned her Ph.D. in Educational Psychology at the University of Wisconsin. She is a registered nurse and holds a master's degree in psychiatric nursing. Dr. Coyle is an associate of the International Forgiveness Institute and continues to pursue research in the areas of both forgiveness and post-abortion trauma among men.Review:
"Men and Abortion scores an emotional touchdown for men! One of only two books ever written about men and abortion, this book is ground-breaking,based on research,and superbly written. Men emotionally injured by abortion? You bet, and there is plenty of evidence that for some it is enduring and traumatic. While it has long been known that abortion can be emotionally harmful for women, it is newsworthy that an entire book has been dedicated to helping men understand that their emotional pain following abortion is normal. The reader is gently guided by Dr. Coyle through the elusive steps of awareness and healing, with primary emphasis on forgiveness of self and others. Male and female readers will find much compassion and hope between these covers. On a topic that is so gender-biased, Coyle's contribution is sizable and compelling." -- Dr. Vincent Rue, Director of the Institute for Pregnancy Loss in Stratham, NH
