On the outside you look fine. Just like everyone else: you work, sleep, play -- you live your life.
But on the inside . . . Are you experiencing any of these?
- emotional numbness
- crying or depression
- substance abuse
- guilt, shame or regret
- anger or rage
- inability to forgive
- low self-esteem
- trouble with intimacy
- eating disorders
- suicidal thoughts
- secrecy / isolation
- difficulty being around children
You are not alone . . . the feelings you are experiencing are normal and thousands of others have experienced them too.
"In spite of the debate surrounding abortion, every day thousands of women make this choice. Believing that somehow the abortion is 'for the best', they go ahead and deny what they intuitively feel. They decide in haste and live out their lives in silenced agony. I know because I did. I also know that healing is possible -- but only if you face your decision, embrace the loss of your child, and reach out to a loving God."
Susan Stanford-Rue, Ph.D. Psychologist and author of Will I Cry Tomorrow?

It may have been years since your abortion. But the sense of loss and guilt has not lessened. When you see another woman's child, you can't help but wonder what yours might look like today. Millions of women like yourself suffer from Post-Abortion Stress (PAS).
Most suffer in silence as they try to overcome their feelings of remorse and guilt. But you don't have to.
