Support after Abortion
Many people have been touched by abortion. You may have experienced abortion yourself or know someone close to you who has experienced abortion. She may be your daughter, your mother, your girlfriend, your wife, your friend. If you have experienced abortion or been impacted by someone else’s abortion, we are here to listen and offer support. We offer a safe place where you will be respected, valued, and listened to where you are. We provide two resources you and a caring advocate can work through one-on-one or you can experience in a group setting:
- Our faith-based process uses the book, Transforming Your Story: A Path to Healing After Abortion by Wendy Giancola and takes place over a nine-week period. It includes spiritual tools to help you along the journey which include “Biblical stories of redemption; practical suggestions for coping with anger, depression, and shame; prayers that open the soul to God; journal prompts to unburden the heart; and personal experiences of women who have found healing.” Transforming Your Story, 2018
- Our non faith-based resource is Keys to Hope and Healing, a resource from The Word Among Us Partners and Support After Abortion. It is “the gateway to start a conversation about healing from abortion. It opens the door to start the journey and consists of six keys to work through” in a group or with your advocate. “The keys build on each other, digging a little deeper into the past hurt that abortion has caused and encourages participants to look at their own lives and make connections from their current emotions and behaviors to their abortion experience and find ways to work through them.” supportafterabortion.com
Keys to Hope and Healing, a four-week confidential Support Group, will begin Wednesday, March 20th, from 5:00 – 7:00pm at the Pregnancy and Parenting Center. If you are interested in participating, please email us, call us, or fill out the contact form below personally or anonymously.
Transforming Your Story After Abortion Healing Support Group – Our next confidential group sessions will begin Wednesday, May 8th, at the Pregnancy and Parenting Center.

“Abortion healing is the process of working through your emotions, grieving your losses, sharing your story, and finding freedom from making future decisions out of fear and trauma.” supportafterabortion.com
We invite you to start that journey or continue where you left off.
