After Abortion Care


Did you have an abortion or abortions in the past? If so, you may have made your choice to have an abortion willingly, without any hang ups or second thoughts. Or you may have felt pressured by other people who you cared about and respected. Maybe you felt as if abortion was your only option. In any case, you made a choice and you had no idea at that time how that choice would affect you.

Although not all women and men who chose abortion have problems afterward, many do. Immediately following an abortion, you may have felt a sense of relief that the crisis was over. However, weeks, months or years after the abortion the sense of relief you felt may have been replaced by:

  • Depression
  • Sadness
  • Anxiety
  • Eating disorders
  • Alcohol or drug use
  • Problems with intimacy
  • Feelings of low self-esteem
  • Thoughts of suicide
  • Desire to avoid pregnant women and/or babies
  • Fear of infertility
  • Fear of becoming pregnant again
  • Fear that future children may die
  • Recurring nightmares or flashbacks to the abortion experience

You’re not alone. And if your mood keeps you from doing the things you usually do each day you may want to seek help. Many women have found freedom and healing from the pain of their abortions. And now you have an opportunity to choose again – to make a choice to heal, to become strong, to be restored. We know that the choice is far from easy. We are here to help.

We have trained peer counselors (women who also chose abortion in the past) who can help you work through issues that you think may be related to a past abortion. Our After-Abortion Care program helps women and men overcome the emotional trauma and spiritual issues they may experience after an abortion.

We offer a confidential, non-judgmental environment in which you can talk one-on-one with someone who made the same choice to have an abortion as you did. We also have After-Abortion small groups you may want to consider joining.

Call Kathy Krekel (505) 995-1998 or email her to confidentially discuss your needs and to find out more about how our After-Abortion Care program could help you.

Our Centers do not offer, recommend or refer for abortions or abortifacients. We are committed to offering accurate information about abortion procedures and risks.
