Emily’s Voice is bringing two experts to Toowoomba to speak on the psychological effects of abortion on men and women. Dr Priscilla Coleman and Mr Greg Hasek, both from the USA, will speak at the free seminar on Wednesday, May 23, at Rangeville Community Church, 362 Mackenzie Street, from 7pm-9.30pm.
Dr Coleman is a Professor of Human Development and Family Studies at Bowling Green State University in Ohio. She has published more peer-reviewed articles on the mental health implications of abortion than any other researcher. She recently published in the British Journal of Psychiatry her alarming findings of a meta-analysis of 22 international studies on abortion.
She concluded that 20-30% of women who had an abortion suffered from serious, prolonged negative consequences.
Gregory Hasek is a licensed marriage and family therapist in Portland, Oregon and a professor in the graduate counseling program at George Fox University. He is also the executive director of a Christian non-profit agency called Misty Mountain Family Counseling Center. Mr. Hasek has spoken at numerous conferences and has provided training on how to understand and treat the unique symptoms of men wounded by “Lost Fatherhood” due to an abortion decision.
