Tears of the Fisherman

By Kevin Burke, LSW

Tears of the Fisherman is the best book that I have read thus far on the subject of men and abortion. The reason I can say this is from my own experience with an abortion in 1972 after 39 years of suffering as I struggled to forgive myself. Every single chapter spoke to me as a man with the clear understanding of forgiveness for others and myself. - Brendon Fassett, New Life Solutions, Largo Florida

Tears of the Fisherman will help readers understand the wider impact of abortion on men, their relationships, families, faith and work lives.

Through case studies, personal testimony, and the author’s 20 years of experience in post-abortion counseling, you will encounter men devastated by unwanted abortions, the burden of shame and guilt carried by men who were passive at the time of the abortion decision or pressured their partners to abort, and the impact of abortion among the male prison population.

Chapters of the book explore the impact of abortion on relationships, male celebrity abortion stories, addiction and abortion loss, abortion in the African-American community, a grandfather’s story of family healing, and the recovery experience for men.

If you are a man who is confused about your abortion experience and wonder if the event had any impact on your life – this book is for you.

If you want to reach out as a friend, family member, counselor or minister, Tears of the Fisherman will equip you with sensitivity and understanding to effectively guide men to recovery and peace.

As you encounter the men in Tears of the Fisherman, you will discover that like the Apostle Peter’s painful denial of the Christ, they emerged from their journey of repentance and healing stronger, faith-filled and compassionate men.

At Eucharistic Adoration, I use "In the Palm of His Hand," and am so grateful to have this volume. -- Ada F.

Thank you for your longstanding witness to life and especially for your Booklet: "In the Palm of His Hand." While praying with this booklet many times during exposition of the Blessed Sacrament in our parish, Holy Spirit moved me to a much deeper awareness of life within me. – Carol, Gignac, CT.

On Saturday mornings, a group of college and theology seminarians pray the rosary at a local abortion clinic. We read the rosary pro-life meditations within the booklet for before each of the decades. It is my intention to get a copy of the booklets you sent to each of our college and theology students here this year. In this way, I hope we can encourage greater participation through prayer and action in defense of God’s gift of life. Hopefully, the men will carry this concern with them as they continue on their vocations, either as a priest or in service amongst the church laity. -- Jim, Seminarian

 

A Will to Live

Some may ask if it is acceptable to sign a “Living Will.” Obviously, we cannot predict the future, or know in advance what form of sickness or disease we may be afflicted with in the years ahead. We do not know what treatments we will need or what will be available.

The "Will to Live" is an alternative to a "Living Will." This is a safer route to appoint a health care proxy who can speak for you in those cases where you may not be able to speak for yourself. This should be a person who knows your beliefs and values, and with whom you discuss these matters in detail. In case you cannot speak for yourself, your proxy can ask all the necessary questions of your doctors and clergy, and make an assessment when all the details of your condition and medical needs are actually known. That's much safer than predicting the future. Appointing a health care proxy in a way that safeguards your right to life is easy.

The "Will to Live" is different for each State. If you are ordering a "Will to Live" for someone in a different State than the address you give us, please let us know in the notes section so we can send you the correct form.
