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 together:

  • 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.

“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
