P.A.C.E. – Post Abortion Counseling & Education
If you wish to begin the healing process from a past abortion(s) we offer free and Confidential Post-Abortion Group sessions. This group is designed to help You work through your past Abortion(s) in a safe, compassionate and supportive environment.
After an abortion a woman usually experiences an enormous sense of relief. For better or worse at least the crisis is over. “I can get on with my life now, the pregnancy is behind me.” Over a period of time the relief begins to wear off and the moral struggle she felt prior to the abortion resurfaces. It might occur as she learns more about fetal development or she may even experience a change in her moral perspective. This in turn, causes her to question her past choice. The reality of what happened begins to set in and she finds it increasingly difficult to deal with her emotions.
Post-Abortion Syndrome is a type of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. It occurs when a woman is prevented from going through a normal healthy grieving process. It keeps her from coming to peace with herself, God and those involved with her decision to abort.
Some common symptoms of Post-Abortion Syndrome are:
- Crying Episodes
- Repeat Abortions
- Problems with Relationships
- Drug/Alcohol abuse and other Self destructive behaviors
- Keeping Track of Child’s Age
- Feelings of Emptiness and Loss
Post Abortion Counseling & Education (PACE)
Forgiven and Set Free: A Post-Abortion Bible Study
The Forgiven and Set Free Bible Study is based on the premise that a genuine, permanent healing of post-abortion pain can come only when a woman has come to grips with a more primary issue: her reconciliation to God.
In small, confidential groups women share their abortion experiences and explore Bible passages that show what God is really like and how He demonstrates compassion to women with crisis pregnancies. They also learn to apply biblical truths to symptoms such as emotional numbness, anger, depression and grief.

Sessions will be held at the Crisis Pregnancy Center, 853 Haskell St, Reno, NV 89509

Otto Kelly with his two sons.
We are in monumental times, never before in history has there been a need for strong uncompromising men, and fathers of courage. Many men have lacked the much needed validation and fathering that is essential for success. As a result we have gone through immobilized which can often lead to frustration, anger, promiscuity and violence. We neither know nor understand us. We are encouraged to pursue self indulgence, honor pleasure and respect narcissism. We then pass on this facade to our sons and daughters who then perpetuate this ongoing deception to their children. This is not our heritage as men. The cycle must and will stop with you. We have forgotten that we have been designed to create, defend, protect, serve, care provide, and teach. We are to walk in nobility, accountability, honesty and integrity. We are to carry ourselves in such a way that our action warrants an explanation. We are to be that man that we respect in others. You are that man and it is time that you introduce yourself to him. We can help.
– Otto Kelly
