"Help & Healing After Abortion"

We Know, We Understand & We Want to Help You Heal!

*Do you feel alone with the emotional pain of your abortion experience?

*Do you struggle to turn off the feeling connected to your abortion; such as guilt, shame, anger, or regret?

*Are you experiencing sadness, eating disorders, suicidal thoughts, or drug & alcohol related problems?

Sometimes, reaching out for help can be the hardest thing to do. If you've had an abortion and you've regretted your decision--maybe you feel you don't deserve help with your emotional and spiritual wounds. You struggle with guilt, anger, depression...and it's been getting in the way of your personal relationships...and your relationship with God.

Start your way to new beginnings and begin your healing process from the effects of abortion. Women who have had abortions experience symptoms called "Post Abortion Syndrome" (also known as PAS) this is a very real condition produced by the trauma of having an Abortion.

A confidential and compassionate support group is available for you. The next healing support group is forming now, call for group schedules, fees and locations. Group sizes are limited, reserve your space and group materials today.

You're only weeks away from your New Beginning...

ABORTIONS AFTERMATH

WHAT AM I EXPERIENCING?

Post Abortion Syndrome = is a type of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) that is characterized by the chronic or delayed development of symptoms resulting from impacted emotional reactions to the perceived physical and emotional trauma of abortion. In other words, long after the abortion you may develop emotional or physical reactions; others may have chronic, continuing reactions to the abortion.

This leaves a woman with an inability to: process the fear, anger, sadness and guilt surrounding her abortion experience, grieve the loss of her baby, and come to peace with God, herself and others involved in the abortion decision.

SYMPTOMS OF POST-ABORTION SYNDROME

• Guilt
• Anxiety
• Depression
• Suicidal thoughts
• Psychological “numbing”
• Anniversary syndrome
• Flashbacks / Nightmares
• Preoccupation with becoming pregnant
• Survival guilt
• Eating disorders
• Alcohol and drug abuse
• Anger / Rage / Hatred
• Self-punishing behaviors
• Brief reactive psychosis
• Inability to bond with children
• Anxiety over childbearing issues


STATISTICS OF ABORTION

• Tragically approximately 25% of all pregnancies end in abortion.
• At current rates, 43% of women will have at least one abortion by the time they are 45 years of age. (Ramah International Stats)
• 80% Of women experience Guilt
• 71% Experience Crying/Depression and feelings of Regret/Remorse
• 63% Couldn't Forgive themselves
• 50% Surveyed dealt with Anger/Rage
• 46% Felt Helplessness and Despair

Many of us have chosen abortion because we believed what society has told us that: Abortion is the only means to solve a crisis in our life and/or it is only a blob of tissue.

YOU'RE NOT ALONE

PARTICIPANTS COMMENTS. . .

Before this class I thought that I would always live with the pain of my decisions. Although on the surface I appeared to be fine, there was a deep ache that nothing could touch, that I thought no one could understand, and had no words to express it. That is now gone, lifted away by God's hand and replaced with a peace that can only come from Him. I rejoice in knowing that what I have received, He also wants for many, many more. Helene


This class helped me to touch a deeply rooted pain in my heart. Through much Love, Truth, The Word and Ministry, I have recieved God's forgiveness and forgiven myself. This is Freedom!John 8:36 Therefore, if the son makes you free, you shall be free indeed. Julie

It is by God's grace alone that I have come this far in my life. At points in my history he has sent people into my life to remind me that he loves me and that I am worthy of his love. Having recieved that love and being called to this ministry as a women who has not had an abortion, I want you to know that there are people in this world who genuinely care, understand and want to help and I am one of them.

Know this...

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

He is the God of all Comfort!
