Cindy Harless has been involved in the Pro-Life Movement for over 30 years. As a woman affected with guilt, shame, and grief from an abortion, Cindy experienced God’s emotional and spiritual healing touch 12 years after her abortion through a crisis pregnancy center’s ministry program.
Cindy became involved in several aspects of Pro-Life Ministry including; sidewalk counseling, acting as a liaison for Pastor’s for Life, and on a planning committee for Birmingham March for Life. She began volunteering as a peer counselor at Sav-A-Life Shelby. a pregnancy resource center, serving on the board of directors (one year as President), volunteering as Abortion Recovery Director from 2006-2008, and eventually working as a staff member in the Abortion Recovery Director position from 2008-2010.
She was certified as a facilitator by Post-Abortion Counseling and Education (P.A.C.E.) through Care Net in 2006 with a refresher course at Care Net in 2008 and a leadership course from Abortion Recovery Assistance, Piedmont Women's Center Leadership Intensive in 2009.
Cindy’s heart to comfort, strengthen, and encourage other women with the same mercy, help, and comfort God has given her led her to begin Abortion Recovery Alabama (ARA) in 2011. ARA is a statewide ministry that works in the restoration of post-abortion women by facilitating ARA's version of Forgiven and Set Free Bible studies, training, and planting new abortion recovery Bible studies in the State of Alabama. Over the years other curricula have been added; Healing a Father's Heart, Save One, and Support After Abortion Faith-based. ARA's mission is to provide free, caring, non-judgmental, private abortion recovery programs. Our vision is for every person who has had an abortion experience to find spiritual and emotional healing.
