There are some things that just aren’t easy to talk about. Having an abortion, I’d imagine, is probably pretty high on the list.
Yet like many things, talking about it and working through the pain or confusion an abortion leaves behind is a way to begin the healing process.
This was the case for Sammy.*
After a pregnancy test confirmed she was pregnant, she sat down to talk with one of our peer counselors.
During their discussion, Sammy shared how she was very broken hearted over a previous abortion. As she relived her abortion, recalling the details and the decision to abort her baby, she cried quite a bit. It was very obvious that her abortion is something she still struggles with.
Sammy opened up about her abortion with one of our peer counselors, who she has never met, but felt comfortable enough to do so as she indicated on her exit survey.

Suffering in silence about an abortion can be unbearable, but many people are.
This is a huge reason Life Centers exists; to offer support and comfort to those who feel alone.
Soar (spiritually oriented abortion recovery) is a post-abortion recovery support group for both men and women impacted by the loss of a child to abortion. Life Centers leads participants on a confidential journey of recovery in an intimate support group with others who are moving toward freedom and healing.
