Many women experience trauma after an abortion. Some of these manifestations include:
- Feelings of helplessness
- Suicidal thoughts
- Low self-esteem
- Self-destructive behavior
- Drug and alcohol abuse
- Nightmares/sleep anxieties
- Anniversary reactions
- Anger at others involved
- Anger at God and Church
- Sexual problems
- Broken relationships
- Intense interest in babies
- No joy in another's pregnancy
These are common reactions for those who have had abortions. But you may think that no one else who has had an abortion feels this way. You are not alone.
Project Rachel Offers:
- Complete confidentiality
- A chance to share your grief in a safe atmosphere of acceptance and trust
- Referrals to priests or professional counselors
- Forgiveness, healing, and peace through Rachel's Vineyard Healing Retreats
As a program of Catholic Community Services, Project Rachel welcomes people of all faiths, and is not for women only.
