Hurting after an abortion? Can’t get past the pain?
After an abortion a woman usually experiences an enormous sense of relief. But over a period of time the relief wears off and the moral struggle she felt prior to the abortion resurfaces. Life changes cause her to re-examine and question her past choices. The reality of abortion sets in, and she finds it increasingly difficult to deal with her emotions.
Are you feeling trapped by the memory of a past abortion or abortions? You are not alone. There is hope for you at the Laurel Pregnancy Center!
Unfortunately, many women have abortions without understanding the serious, irreversible consequences that follow the procedure. Within days, months, or even years after an abortion, many women experience physical and emotional problems stemming from their abortion. Most women have no idea why this is happening to them.
