After-Abortion Support Group
Abortion is not just a simple medical procedure. For many women, it is a life-changing event with significant long term emotional and spiritual consequences. There is evidence that abortion is associated with a decrease in both emotional and physical health. Not all people are the same; so how your friend felt or responded after her abortion may not be the same for you. Some may experience negative emotions which can appear within days or after many years or even decades of their abortion. Separate classes are offered for women as well as men to recover from their abortion experience.
Up From the Ashes Recovery Class
This 10-week class helps women emotionally and spiritually process their struggles following an abortion. With a small class size and compassionate support, you will find the courage to face the pain of a previous abortion (or abortions), no matter how long it’s been. Classes are completely confidential.
We understand, and we care about you. Trust us to help you put the pain in the past and start living the life you were meant to.
