Organized by the National Office for Post-Abortion Reconciliation and Healing (NOPARH) and sponsored by the Knights of Columbus and the Archdiocese of San Francisco, it was the first international event ever held on the topic of men and abortion.
The 170 participants came from 28 states and nine countries to hear about an issue that has been "sorely neglected from the beginning of the abortion debate," said NOPARH executive director Victoria Thorn in opening remarks at what she called "a politically incorrect conference." Professional counselors and clergy gathered to start a discussion about how best to address the pain, loss, guilt, and considerable anger of untold numbers of men as a result of abortion.
