Are You Being Affected By A Past Abortion Decision?

Don’t let anyone tell you your emotions are not valid. They are real. Many women struggle with sadness, anger, shame, and regret days, months, or even years post-abortion. Abortion can be a traumatic experience. But, healing is also real.

You are not alone on this journey. There are people ready to assist you, free from any judgment and condemnation.

Struggling With Your Thoughts and Emotions

Not every woman who has an abortion experiences difficult thoughts and feelings, but some do. Others have reported having some or all of the following:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression or sadness
  • Anger
  • Grief
  • Guilt
  • Numbness
  • Fear
  • Symptoms consistent with PTSD

In trying to deal with these difficult emotions related to their abortion, people have reported these:

  • Beginning or increasing drug or alcohol abuse
  • Isolating themselves
  • Self-harm
  • Suicidal behaviors

We know that dealing with a past abortion can be impactful and overwhelming, but we’re here to help.

You’re Not Alone

Although abortion is part of our nation’s daily conversation, many women have never told a single person about their abortion. You may feel alone in your decision or fear that you will be judged. It may seem as if, because you made the decision, you have no right to grieve.

You need a safe place where you can talk freely without judgment. Our compassionate advocates will keep your confidence and respect the uniqueness of your post-abortion struggle.
