Deciding to end a pregnancy is difficult. Regardless of the circumstances, it is a complex loss—one that needs to be acknowledged. Ritual can help us cope with—and make sense of—our emotional response to this arduous experience.
A ceremony that a woman who has had an abortion can perform with a group of women. This ceremony uses the symbols of tashlich(casting out) and mikveh; the woman mourns the loss, renews herself, and attempts to bring closure to the abortion.
