There have been two previous posts on this topic: a survivor who chose to remain anonymous wrote of her experiences between the ages of 13 and 17 with the sacrifice of full-term babies https://ritualabuse.wordpress.com/2018/03/01/about-breeders-in-satanic-cults/ and Tracy’s account of the similar loss of her babies https://ritualabuse.wordpress.com/2018/03/20/about-breeders-in-satanic-cults-part-2/
This topic is not often talked about, and survivors feel very much alone. I was therefore asked to compile an anthology on this topic. I can do the editing and set up, but I need help in letting people know that a book is in the works. It would mean posting a notice on your blog, if you have one, and letting all your RA/MC contacts, therapists and pastors as well as survivors, know about the project. Ask them to spread the word. And, if this is in their background, ask them to consider writing something – an account of what happened and how it affected them, a memorial, a rant, a poem, whatever moves them.
I plan to get a PO box and post the address here. Meanwhile, tell the people you contact that they can get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or the comment section of this blog. (Emails to email@example.com don’t always come through. If you don’t get an answer, try again or write a comment telling me about the problem.) Detailed instructions for making comments are in “News Items.”
The following is an excerpt from Jade Miller’s blog “Thoughts from J8: Notes on attachment, trauma, dissociation, SRA, multiplicity, and recovery.” http://thoughtsfromj8.com. I edited it down a little and Jade approved the changes.
The blog has a lot of really helpful material and I hope you will go and explore the back entries.
I thank Jade from the bottom of my heart for her generosity and courage in sharing her experiences and for giving me permission to publish it both here and in the anthology.
Pregnancy and Loss in Ritual Abuse
by Jade 21. April 2016
This post is going to be a bit heavier than others. Feel free to exit at any time. Do whatever you need to do – I will never be offended if someone doesn’t read something I write. Take care of yourself. I will try to be as sensitive and non-triggering as possible, but some things are just hard. There’s no way around it. They’re hard, and they suck. Like really badly, they suck.
One thing I don’t talk about with people hardly ever (and this includes people who know me in real life and are privy to my story), and haven’t heard talked about hardly ever, is the topic of pregnancy and loss in the context of RA. And honestly I don’t know if I can, or how. It’s not easy for me. In fact, this might be one of the hardest posts I’ve ever written thus far in my blogging career. And no, as pretty as it sounds, the idea that writing about it is “cathartic” to me is not really accurate. I wish it was, but it isn’t. The main reason I am writing about it is because I don’t find it discussed anywhere. It’s not the kind of thing you can just spring on your friends. Hell, not even your average therapist would know what to say to this topic, since most don’t even know about RA. See the problem
