after abortion…

Does anyone understand?

Healing Hearts Understands.

Heartbeat Pregnancy Counselling Care Centre is in partnership with Healing Hearts Ministries International. Healing Hearts is a post-abortion organisation open to anyone who is suffering from Post-Abortion Trauma. Many of us who are involved with Healing Hearts have personally experienced abortion. We truly understand the confusion, emptiness and heartache, which so often follow. We understand these things because we have lived them.

“Abortion affects every life it touches and for many it hurts”

What is Post-Abortion Trauma?

Renee, who had an abortion, describes it well:

“Most people assume you get over an abortion in a few days, weeks, or months… I wish it worked that way. I know from experience that you don’t ‘just get over it.’ The guilt, regret, depression, and bitterness are elusive and move into all areas of our lives.”

If you have had an abortion and are hurting, your feelings are normal. If someone you love has had an abortion and you are feeling bad about it, you are not alone. Post-Abortion Trauma is an adverse emotional reaction to abortion. It is often a reaction and can surface at any time in a person’s life… and when it does, it can be confusing, painful and overwhelming.

What women say about Healing Hearts

“I will never be the same! Today I am walking on the road of liberty and freedom and I know that this is just the beginning. I am excited about my future… May God bless all of you for taking the time to help the wounded heal!”- Dawn

“Healing Hearts has guided me to taking the first steps to save my life. No medicine could fix how I was feeling, and nothing could take the pain of my abortion away… This study has had an impact on all aspects of my life. I feel renewed and stronger than ever. I would recommend this to anyone. Thank you.”- Michelle

“I used to feel empty, destroyed, hopeless… I felt that I had really messed up this time. I felt so terribly ashamed and my heart was broken that I had made this choice to my child. I am so glad that through this study I have made peace with myself, my child and God. There is hope even in our hopelessness.”- Chioma

“Not thinking or not experiencing feelings after your choice of abortion(s) does not mean that it is dealt with. I thought this was in the past and it was done… (The truth was) I was hurt, the fathers of my babies were hurt… the list can go on. My first abortion was 38 years ago, and just this year began my healing!!!”- JS
