What is the After Abortion Line?

The Support After Abortion After Abortion Line is a free  support service that provides real-time, compassionate, genuine care via phone, text, email, and social media messaging for people considering abortion who have been impacted by abortion.

We also help individuals considering abortion

If you or your partner are considering abortion , we are here to listen. We can help you talk through your feelings and options. We can connect you to local resources to get an ultrasound and to explore your options to help you as you make this important decision.

What Should I Expect When I Contact the After Abortion Line?

You can expect that someone will listen and help meet your needs with compassion and without judgment. We can also connect you with local resources and support.

Initial Contact

If you are not connected to Support After Abortion immediately when you reach out to us via phone, text, or social media messaging, you will hear from us within 24 hours.


The After Abortion Line is a safe space for you to share what’s going on, what you’re feeling, and explore your options with a Support Team member. We will listen with compassion and without judgment. Many clients considering abortion continue the conversation with us throughout the time during which they are making their decision.


If you like, we can connect you with a local resource to get an ultrasound and learn more about your options and the help that is available for you. You can either fill out a form online and someone can call you or we can provide you with their contact information for you to make the connection yourself.

Follow Up

We will follow up with you using your preferred contact method to be sure that your needs are met, your questions answered, and that you have been able to connect with the resource you wanted.

Should you choose abortion, we will share options for healing after abortion resources, programs, and providers. Should you choose to keep your baby, we can connect you with local resources to provide practical help and support for you.


I had an abortion scheduled when I called Support After Abortion. They listened as I talked about what was going on in my head and what my family and boyfriend were telling me I should do. They helped me get an ultrasound. I learned how far along I was and got to see the baby. I still feel a little stuck because my family and boyfriend aren’t happy, but I’ve decided to keep my baby. Support After Abortion connected me with places that can help me with practical stuff. I feel stronger and more confident. I’m moving forward.

It means so much to me to know you all are there for me. I can’t imagine having gone through any of this without all the support I’ve had so far. Thank you. I will think about after abortion healing and let you know when I’m ready for that.

– Client who chose abortion


We have abortion-minded clients call the After Abortion Line frequently, really feeling like having an abortion is the only option they have. I can relate to that because that’s how I felt when I had an abortion when I was eighteen. The only thing I considered was abortion. I wasn’t pro-life or pro-choice, I was pro-me. We hear it all the time – people coming to us conflicted about making the decision, but feeling like they have to. I’m very honest and non-judgmental when I tell them what they can expect after abortion.

When a woman contacts us unsure of whether or not to continue a pregnancy, my focus is on her and how this decision will impact her life. I can share my experience and what we’ve learned from the thousands of people we’ve worked with. It’s her decision. If she has an abortion, my goal is that she feels comfortable enough and trusts us enough that if she’s struggling afterwards, she’ll come back to us for healing. Then we have that open door to be able to say You’ve come back to the right place. We can help you. And then we guide her on that journey of healing.
