No-Cost & Judgment-Free Support

Post-abortive care is designed to help you if you’ve experienced abortion, whether recently or many years ago, and need to work through emotions surrounding that experience. This program addresses damaging emotions and behaviors that can arise from pain following an abortion.

What are the emotional side effects of abortion?

Abortion is a medical procedure, and because of that, the emotional side effects often go undiscussed. However, they are just as real and can be just as damaging as the physical side effects. Some of the emotional side effects of abortion include:

  • Grief
  • Guilt
  • Anger
  • Shame
  • Fear
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Eating disorders such as Bulimia or Anorexia
  • Suicidal thoughts or feelings

Why are there emotional side effects of an abortion?

Abortion can be a traumatic experience, especially if you felt pressured into it, if you had one to please someone else, or if you had moral beliefs against abortion. These emotional effects can only grow and become more damaging over time if they are not addressed properly.
