Many women who choose abortion struggle with emotional, physical, or spiritual distress after that choice. Most of these women suffer in silence. Although abortion might be regularly discussed in the news, it is rarely discussed among friends. It is not just the women who are affected either. The men who would have been fathers are equally yet differently affected.
Symptoms Of Abortion Trauma
Some women immediately regret their abortion decision. Others, although quickly feeling relief, find symptoms rising to the surface years or even decades later. Here are some of the post-abortion emotions you may be feeling:
- Anger and bitterness
- Low self-esteem
- Depression, suicidal thoughts
- Struggling in relationships
- Emotional numbness
- Self-harm with drugs, alcohol, or other addictions
- Unforgiveness of self and others
- Our Hope & Healing Program
Life After Choice Abortion Recovery Ministry was birthed out of a deep desire to help women (and men) who have been wounded by a past abortion, find the forgiveness, healing, and wholeness that Jesus Christ so freely offers us. This post-abortion support program is often led by women who have previously had an abortion or gone through the abortion healing process themselves. They would love to help you begin your healing journey.
Urgent: If you are experiencing immediate physical problems after an abortion such as pain, bleeding, fever, or nausea, please call your doctor now or go to an emergency room. These symptoms may indicate signs of complications that require immediate medical attention.
