Healing from Abortion Resources

Healing After Abortion

Without question, abortion can be one of the most traumatic experiences in a person’s life. Statistics estimate that close to 1 in 3 women of childbearing age have experienced an abortion. These women carry an incredible burden of silence and heartache while wearing smiles on their faces.

Many people struggle for years with repressed memories, guilt, shame, and depression. The truth is many women who have had an abortion suffer from symptoms of post-abortion grief and trauma. Most women feel they aren’t allowed to talk about their abortion experience because it was their “choice.”

As with any traumatic experience, many post-abortive women experience physical, emotional, and spiritual symptoms they may not realize are directly related to a past abortion.

  • Do you feel you can’t tell anyone about your abortion (they just wouldn’t understand)?

  • Are there details about the abortion that you cannot remember? 

  • Have you lost interest in things you used to love since having the abortion? 

  • Do you often feel angry and irritable? 

  • Do you tend to look at your life in terms of “before” and “after” the abortion?

  • Has your self-concept changed?

  • Do you find yourself struggling to ignore the feelings connected to your abortion?

  • Do you find yourself involved in unhealthy relationships or self-destructive behaviors?

  • Have you experienced any prolonged times of depression or suicidal thoughts since your abortion?

  • Are you using/abusing alcohol or drugs to numb your feelings?

Is Abortion Affecting Your Life,
Your Health and Your Well-being?
