What If I Already Had an Abortion?

To fully process your feelings about a past abortion, you need someone you can trust to listen, not judge, and help you find a way forward. You need Choices Pregnancy Center.In spite of all the loud political voices arguing over abortion, many women who've had an abortion find it difficult to talk about.

Are you one of those women?

We know women who say they have only told one or two trusted people about their abortions. Some have never told anyone.

Maybe that’s because they feel their experience was intensely personal. Maybe they are afraid of the way people might react. Maybe they have mixed feelings about their own abortion. Maybe they just don’t want to talk about it.

What's that like for you?

Just like any significant event in your life, a past abortion can suddenly bubble to the top of your memories. When that happens, are you ever surprised by the feelings it stirs up? Those feelings may be a sign that you still need to process the impact of that event on your life.

But where does a woman like you go to do that?

What if there was a safe place to talk about my abortion?

What if you could find someone you trusted to listen with compassion—not judge you—while you sorted out your thoughts and feelings about your past abortion?

Wouldn’t it be a relief to lay it all out before a caring mentor? It would be kind of like letting go of the rock you’ve been carrying around in your backpack.

What if there was a way to make sense of life since my abortion?

Some women experience abortion as a sort of trauma. And trauma runs its nasty fingers through the rest of our lives if we let it. What if there was a way to figure out why some parts of your life “just don’t work right” since your abortion?

What if you could get the effects of your trauma to untangle themselves from your life? Feeling good about yourself, your relationships, and your future just might be worth the work to get there, right?

What if I could finally be at peace with my abortion?

An abortion stirs up different feelings in different women. What if you could finally sort out your feelings and deal with them once and for all?

What if you could finally experience freedom to move forward without those nagging feelings holding you back?
