Introduction to Viable

Our mission at Support After Abortion is to end the demand for abortion through healing men and women that have been impacted by abortion. Through compassion, we help men and women impacted by abortion break the cycle, providing treatment and care that lead to profound changes in the choices they make and the very outcome of their lives. The process of healing starts with coming alongside humanity, no matter where they are in life—- no matter the sins committed, no matter the profound pain and dire circumstances. We come alongside human souls with compassion and kindness, allowing them to see they are loved despite what has happened in their life.

Support After Abortion is sponsoring the play, Viable, across the United States.

The one-act play, Viable, is not about the legality, constitutionality, or the politics of abortion. Rather it focuses on grace, mercy, healing, and redemption that are available to all men and women impacted. One in four women will experience abortion by their 45th birthday and most of them hold the secret inside forever.

In 60 minutes, with three actors and two chairs, Viable’s simple but powerful storyline is a passionate portrayal of one woman attempting to protect her own emotions amidst decades of post-abortion trauma.Like millions of women in the United States and around the world, the leading character, Judy, suffers
psychologically for three decades from a wound that time alone won’t heal until she encounters this healing in a most unexpected and unconventional way.

Our sponsorship of Viable is important because it reinforces our mission of recognizing abortion as a human issue, not the political issue that has taken center stage. Human issues call for healing.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Support After Abortion’s mission is to end the demand for abortion through healing those impacted by abortion. Abortion is a generational and repeated behavior. 25% of women will have an abortion by their 45th birthday, resulting in nearly one million abortions occurring every year in the United States; 50% are repeated experiences. Through compassion, we bring healing and hope to men and women and provide support as they begin their abortion healing process.
