ABORTION RECOVERY

​Following abortion, many women experience initial relief.  The perceived crisis is over and life returns to normal.  For many women, however, the crisis isn’t over.  Months & even years later, significant problems develop.  There is evidence that abortion is associated with a decrease in long-term emotional & physical health.

Women who have experienced abortion may develop the following: guilt, depression, grief, suicidal thoughts, anger, difficulty bonding with their partner or children, anxiety, or eating disorders.

The bottom line is that the scientific evidence indicates that abortion is more likely to be associated with negative psychological outcomes when compared to miscarriage or carrying an unintended pregnancy to term.
People have different understandings of God.  Whatever your present beliefs may be, having an abortion may affect more than just your body & your mind — there is a spiritual side to abortion that deserves to be considered.
We believe that after abortion, God offers forgiveness, healing and hope.
