Recovery and Healing

Before your abortion you may not have been told about the complications often experienced after an abortion. You are not alone.

Here is a list of local and national organizations providing free help following an abortion.

Many women experience grief, regret, depression, anxiety, or thoughts of suicide after an abortion. Others need medical and legal help due to physical complications.

Also, a woman may consider having an abortion because she is afraid she does not have the resources to support a child. If you or someone you know would like to find alternatives to an abortion, enclosed also is a list of free local services that will help provide food, clothing, continuing education assistance, and housing for you and your child.
