Has abortion changed you? Everyone is different, and your abortion experience is unique. For example, your emotions immediately afterward may have been surprising. Alternatively, you may have had a delayed emotional response after your experience or maybe you don’t have any feelings associated with your abortion at all. There is no right or wrong way to feel. The PRC is here to provide support no matter how abortion has impacted your life.
Life After Abortion
Life after abortion can be filled with feelings such as relief, regret, anxiety, or even depression. Your feelings are valid and unique to you. Since you may find it helpful to process your experience and feelings, we are here to help. There is never a wrong time to start working through your feelings. On one hand, you can choose to work with someone who understands, is willing to listen, and can provide help. On the other hand, you can also work through your experience and feelings on your own with helpful resources.
No matter what you are feeling, you are not alone.
The PRC After Abortion Support Program uses the book “Changed: Making Sense of Your Own Abortion or a Loved One’s Abortion Experience” by Michaelene Fredenburg.
You can anonymously request our After Abortion Support materials be mailed to you by completing the form at the bottom of this page. Your package will arrive inconspicuously via USPS. Additionally, you can choose to talk with us one-on-one. You can talk confidentially with someone trained to support women and men processing an abortion experience.
By using “Changed,” you can explore your emotions and recognize the affects your abortion may have on your life. At the same time, you can build the support you need to heal. The PRC pledges to offer help and compassion to anyone affected by abortion.
Furthermore, for increased confidentiality, we can help you find support outside of your local area too.

In conclusion, our compassionate staff truly cares about your health, happiness, and well-being.
