Abortion is a serious medical procedure with side effects that impact your life in the short term and long term. If you are struggling with an abortion decision in your recent or distant past, please know you don’t have to live with the hard emotions you’re experiencing. There is healing and hope for what you’re feeling now.

  • Despair
  • Grief
  • Sense of loss
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Suicidal thoughts

For Women & Men

The medical, professional, and counseling communities often overlook abortion as a risk factor in a person’s physical and emotional health, further isolating women and men from the support and help they need. It’s estimated that nearly 43% of women have an abortion in their lifetime, and this can leave a lasting impact that’s painful and necessary to uncover and explore.

We provide a compassionate and confidential environment for women and men that have an abortion in their past. Our post-abortion support system facilitates healing and restoration, bringing a sense of hope and purpose for the future.

Support from Options Clinic happens both in class and individual settings, depending on your comfort level.

If you are suffering from a past abortion decision, please reach out to us for help today. You don’t have to experience this pain alone. Healing is possible for anyone with an abortion as part of their past, no matter how long ago or how recently the abortion happened.
