Healing After an Abortion
“Abortion was supposed to be a quick fix. It wasn’t.” – Joan
Have you had an abortion? Are you struggling to move past it? Sometimes the struggle lasts for years.
Some common effects from an abortion can be:
- Drug/Alcohol Use
- Thoughts of Suicide
- Low Self Esteem
- Eating Disorders
- Difficulty Sleeping
- Poor Relationships
Birthright wants be a bridge to healing. Birthright is a safe place to share your story and talk to others who fully understand. We recognize that all have struggled at one time or another, and need support from others to begin the healing process. Birthright will not judge you. We will listen with care and compassion.
No matter how recent or long ago you had an abortion experience, Birthright can walk alongside you, helping you find healing. If and when you are looking for more, Birthright will help connect you with people who can take you through the next step. Almost everyone knows someone who has had an abortion experience. The pain of abortion can touch more than the pregnant woman. You could be the husband, boyfriend, mother, father, child, sibling, or friend. Your feelings are valid and deserved to be heard. Birthright is here for you.
Are you the father of an aborted child – a child who was aborted with or without your consent? Birthright is here for you too. We have male volunteers that are willing to talk privately about your abortion experience. We know guys don’t always like to talk about their “feelings,” but we also know they feel better after they share their story.
Thank you for always being just a phone call away. You’re the only one who seems to mean it when you say you will help.
Seventeen years ago I was in a crisis pregnancy and there were caring people at Birthright to help me get through it. Now I feel God calling me back to Birthright to pay it forward and help others.
When my parents found out I was pregnant, they threw me out on the street. Birthright was there to pick me up and help me find a place to stay and materials to have my baby.
It feels so good to know that there are wonderful people like Birthright in this world that help others. You don’t know how much you are appreciated. Things have been financially stressful but we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
You don’t just help people, you reach out to the hearts of the people you help and that is really special. Thank you for improving my life!
I am 28 years old, happily married with my own child. Each day I realize that my very existence and destiny once depended on the decisions of a frightened teenager. I’m so proud of my mom for having me.
I wanted my wife to have an abortion. I was out of work, we already had two kids and we were late on our mortgage. My wife didn’t want the abortion but I didn’t see any other way. Birthright showed us the way. My son is five and I can’t imagine life without him.
I was ashamed when I called Birthright. My daughter had run off and left her baby with me. I didn’t know what to do and I’ve never had to ask for help from anyone. You never treated me bad. You never judged me. I’m so glad I called.
Thanks for always being just a phone call away. You’re the only one who seems to mean it when you say you’ll help.
Thinking you might be pregnant is the scariest feeling in the world. I felt paralyzed and had nowhere to turn. hen a friend told me about Birthright. I got a free pregnancy test right in their office and was so relieved that it was negative. The volunteer never judged me, she was supportive and kind.
I have never forgotten how Birthright help me through my crisis. Now two years later I am a single mom of a beautiful little girl. I hope you will pass these clothes on to let others know there is always hope.
I thought I was completely alone in the world – and then I called Birthright. The hope you gave me that night, and in the coming months, turned my crisis into joy.
My son would not be alive today if it wasn’t for Birthright. I didn’t have to sacrifice my education or career to have him either. Birthright helped me through the initial crisis and continued to help until I was on my feet again. The volunteers of Birthright treated me like I was family.
I just want to say thank you so much for caring. I praise God to have Birthright in my life. Thank you for all the gifts and for coming to my house when my son was sick.
How did you know? How did you know to call just when I needed you? My husband beats on me, my family turns away from me, but you are always there. You are more than Birthright. You are my friend. I love you.
I was one of your first clients. My son is grown now and a very fine man. Thank you.
I came to Birthright 9 months pregnant and living in my car. Birthright took me in when no family or friends would. It has taken me years to get my act together. I could not have done it without Birthright being at my side the whole way.
I didn’t want to get an abortion but I felt I had no other choice. Birthright offered me the support and resources I needed to have my baby.
I was scared, alone and saw no way out of this mess. Then I found Birthright. I wasn’t alone anymore. They walked with me and held my hand. They gave me hope that things would get better. Thank God for Birthright.
