The loss of a child is tragic and difficult, including the loss by abortion. A woman doesn’t truly know what she will experience after the loss and doing it alone is the last thing you should do. You may have had an abortion thinking it would solve your problems and help you move on, only to find that you have feelings of guilt, shame, and regret. Your body’s hormones may be out of sorts and uncontrollable due to your pregnancy ending unnaturally. Some may tell you that this will pass, and they aren’t wrong. However, will you truly heal the way you want?
There are resources available to you and to other women who are suffering the loss of a child through abortion. Places like Hope After Abortion , Surrendering the Secret, and By Your Side LA are just a few of the resources out there.
