How Can I Recover Emotionally After An Abortion?
Every woman responds to her abortion differently. For some women, abortion is a mark of freedom and self-rule. For others, their abortion represents heartache and deep regret. If you’re struggling emotionally after your abortion, we have a program called Conquerors that offers healing and restoration. Find out more today.
Studies suggest that 1 in 4 women will have an abortion by age 45. Although abortion is a common news topic, few discuss their personal experience at social events with friends. Most women choose not to say anything.
Are these some of the emotions you’re experiencing silently?
- Nightmares or flashbacks
- Anger and bitterness
- Low self-esteem
- Suicidal thoughts
- Guilt, shame, or regret
- Emotional numbness
- Self-harm with drugs, alcohol, or other addictions
- Unforgiveness of self and others
It doesn’t matter if your abortion was 10 days or 10 years ago. The pain is very real.
You Can Find Healing
Abortion is rarely a quick and easy decision. When a woman suddenly discovers she’s unexpectedly pregnant, she may feel anxious, fearful, or shameful. If she decides abortion is the best way to handle the situation, her anxiety grows.
Are you someone who has kept your abortion a secret, chosen to stuff the memory away, but now feels a wave of emotions? There is hope and healing.
Our Conquerors program is a safe, non-judgmental, and confidential place to begin healing. Compassionate women, who have had abortions, lead the program and can relate to what you’re going through.
The Conquerors program supports men and women who have experienced at least one abortion and are struggling with the pain of that experience. This 9-week program offers healing through small, confidential support groups or individual mentoring.
