Healing After Abortion

Abortion’s Pain

Despite attempts to normalize abortion, many women come to regret this decision and grieve the loss of their children.  Abortion often leaves a wound that time doesn’t heal.

Both women and men may experience grief and regret after an abortion.  Post-Abortion Syndrome (PAS) can include debilitating guilt, anxiety, addiction, depression, fear, eating disorders, and suicidal thoughts.  PAS may even be delayed, emerging unexpectedly years later.
