Are you struggling after having an abortion, months or even years later? Although everyone’s experience after an abortion is unique, there are common, long-lasting effects that many individuals experience.
Seeking support from an experienced facilitator is vital to beginning your healing journey. You deserve joy; you deserve to find peace again.
According to U.S News & World Report, if current trends continue, 43% of American women will have at least one abortion in their lifetime.
Since the legalization of abortion in 1973, there have been well over sixty-one million abortions performed in the United States alone, with one and a half million abortions performed each year, according to the statistics from the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta, Georgia.
