After Abortion: For those who need healing

Some people seem to think there are two types of people: those that decide no, and those that do. Life isn't that simple. Some do and regret. There is a myth that there is no emotional cost doing abortion, but for some women that is not the reality. For those people there is help from people who care, frequently people who have also suffered the same pain and wish to help.

Here are some places to get started:

After Abortion

A blog by an abortion survivor with many links and much information for those coping with the after-effects who want and need help.

National Office of Post Abortion Reconcilliation and Healing

Founded in 1990, the National Office of Post-Abortion Reconciliation and Healing, Inc. networks researchers and psychotherapeutic professionals working in the field within the U.S. and abroad, consults on the formation of post-abortion support services within secular and religious settings including Project Rachel, provides training for care providers, maintains a national "800" referral line for those seeking assistance in reconciling an abortion experience, publishes the International Post-Abortion Support Services Directory, produces and vends audio, video, and printed materials, maintains an annotated book list, tracks support group models, and sponsors the Healing Vision conference at Marquette University.

Hope After Abortion:

It's normal to grieve a pregnancy loss, including the loss of a child by abortion. It can form a hole in one's heart, a hole so deep that sometimes it seems nothing can fill the emptiness.

Since 1973, there have been more than 36 million abortions in the United States. While some women report relatively little trauma following abortion, for many, the experience is devastating, causing severe and long-lasting emotional, psychological and spiritual trauma.

Many links here for resources, help, support.
