Rachel’s Vineyard Establishes Medical Board


Priests for Life


  MALVERN, PA – The biannual training conference for the world’s largest ministry of healing after abortion, Rachel’s Vineyard, continued in Malvern, Pa., Wednesday with the formal establishment of a Medical Advisory Board.


Rachel’s Vineyard utilizes the services of psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists and other professionals in the mental health field throughout the world. They assist both on the retreats and in the development and analysis of the effectiveness of this treatment model.


The establishment of a special advisory board now formalizes what has been happening all along, but brings the added advantage of being able to present to the medical and therapeutic community a more structured method of communicating about the issues of trauma and healing after abortion.


Some of the initial members of the Advisory Board are shown in the accompanying photo along with Pastoral Director, Father Frank Pavone. They are, left to right, Cynthia Dillard, Ph.D. (clinical psychologist), Martha Schuping, M.D. (psychiatrist), and Karen B. Stevensen, M.D. (psychiatrist).


Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit
