Post Abortion Support
Helping men heal after an abortion.
Research shows that the impact abortion has on men is significant. The National Survey on Family Growth reports that one in five men will experience abortion by the age of 45. In one study, 71% of men reported adverse effects from a past abortion, including depression, sadness, guilt, regret, anxiety, anger, thoughts of what could have been, emptiness, substance abuse, a sense of lost fatherhood and more.
The legal and cultural narrative around men and abortion can make it difficult to grieve. Often men feel disenfranchised grief or emotional invalidation.
Disenfranchised grief is when your grieving doesn’t fit in
with your larger society’s attitude about dealing with death
and loss. The lack of support you get during your grieving
process can prolong emotional pain.
Abortion can have a deep ripple effect. You may have had an abortion in your past or your life has been profoundly affected by an abortion decision. Individual counseling or an in-person support group can be of great help in healing any pain or regret that may exist. We are here to support you in the recovery process and to help you move through the grieving process.
