Healing Hands

Compassionate counsel for men and women who have had an abortion.

 

Why do I feel so badly?

About 1 in 3 women have had an abortion. Like them, did you have yours:

  • To make your life less complicated?
  • Because you felt pressured?
  • Because you felt overwhelmed?
  • It just wasn't a good time for a baby?

Yet, like them, do you regret your decision?

  • Do you feel guilty and ashamed?
  • Do you keep your abortion secret?
  • Do you feel angry, sad, or afraid?
  • Do you feel unworthy of love?
  • Do you struggle to forgive yourself?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you may be struggling with one or more of the symptoms of post-abortion stress.

What is Post-Abortion Stress?

PAS refers to various struggles that many people experience after having an abortion:

Emotional problems:

  • Low self-esteem, fear
  • Crying, anger, or loneliness

Physical problems:

  • Eating or sleeping disorders
  • Addictive behaviors

Relational problems:

  • Avoiding babies or pregnant women
  • Withdrawal or increased conflict

Spiritual problems:

  • Avoiding God or church people
  • Unable to forgive yourself
