    As Dr. David Reardon of the Elliot Institute states, "if you are experiencing shame or guilt
    because of childhood sexual abuse or abortion, and have a negative experience with a
    particular group, you may believe that is what you deserve.  It isn't.  What you deserve is
    respect, a nonjudgmental attitude, and effective assistance as you heal.  If one person
    or organization isn't right for you, another one will be."
