What is Post-Abortion Syndrome?

It is no respecter of persons. It affects women and men. It crosses all cultures: race…religious beliefs…social or financial status.

How do I know if I am hurting from a past abortion experience?

The symptoms of post-abortion syndrome will not necessarily appear at the same time, nor is it likely that an woman will experience the entire list. Some may occur immediately after an abortion and others much later. If you can identify any of these symptoms, it could be that you are experiencing post-abortion syndrome:

  • Guilt
  • Self-hatred – inability to forgive oneself
  • Depression and suicidal thoughts
  • Sadness
  • Hopelessness
  • Sudden and uncontrollable crying
  • Development or increase of eating disorders
  • Alcohol and drug abuse
  • Increased sexual promiscuity
  • Deterioration of self-esteem
  • Loneliness
  • Anger, irritability
  • Anxiety
  • Fear
  • Deep sense of loss

Lasting Hope offers hope and healing through an eleven week confidential support group, designed to help men and women who are struggling with the pain resulting from having chosen abortion.

Group facilitators guide participants through forgiveness, emotional healing, and restoration.
