What is the After Abortion Line?
The Support After Abortion After Abortion Line is a free after abortion support service that provides real-time, compassionate care via phone, text, email, and social media messaging for people impacted by abortion.
When I called the After Abortion Line I never considered that I would talk to someone else who has had an abortion. As soon as the person on the other line said, “I understand, I too had an abortion,” my fear and uncertainty lightened. I felt for once like I wasn’t alone. In talking with this woman, I was able to ask questions without the fear of not feeling understood. I got to hear that there is hope, I can move forward. I am so glad I picked up the phone and called Support After Abortion.
Why should I call the After Abortion Line?
There are so many emotions common following an abortion experience and they change over time: regret, relief, anger, grief, guilt, anxiety. If you’re struggling to process your emotions or you’re noticing uncharacteristic behaviors like substance abuse or anger issues, they could be related to your abortion experience. Contact us and let us help you. You don’t need to deal with that on your own.
How do I recover? Someone please help me. It feels like I’m drowning in sadness.
I am really struggling to cope. Never a day goes by where I don’t beat myself up for what I did. I really need your help.

Abortion Healing Empowers and Frees You
Abortion healing is ultimately working through your emotions and behaviors connected to your abortion experience and finding healing through the journey. You deserve that joy, freedom, and hope following your abortion experience. We can help you achieve it.
I felt safe to share, safe to cry, even safe to yell! Now I know I don’t have to do this alone or in silence. There are people who care and understand.
I called the Support After Abortion After Abortion Line out of desperation. I couldn’t go on like this any longer. The pain was all consuming. A woman answered. She let me cry, told me it was okay to feel. She stayed on the phone with me until I felt better; drained, but better. I just finished my healing group and cannot believe how different I am today than I was just a few months ago. Thank you for saving my life.
