Post Your Story of Healing

If you have a story of healing that you'd like to share, please submit it in the space below. It would be helpful if you could share some background about the abortion, the impact of the abortion, how you dealt with the experience, and any resources that were helpful for you or for your family. Please do your best to protect the privacy of those involved by removing any information that could reveal their identities.

If you have written a story of healing in a separate document that you would like us to publish, please upload it here. We prefer Word or PDF formats.

  • Tuesday, December 10, 1985 - a dreary, rainy, cold day, perfect for what I was doing: traveling with my boyfriend to an abortion. Pregnancy was confirmed just days earlier, but I was not married, I couldn’t even say I loved the father of this child, and I was terrified that my parents would find out about the mess I had made of my life at 20 years old.
