Post-Abortion Stress (PAS) is real. Abortion can leave an emotional, mental and spiritual impact upon women, their families and loved ones. The symptoms of PAS will not necessarily all appear at the same time, nor is it likely that a woman will experience the entire list.
Symptoms of Post-Abortion Stress (PAS)
Symptoms of post-abortion stress may include the following:
- Feelings of anxiety
- Confused thought
- Relationship difficulties
- Anger and resentment
- Self-destructive behaviors
If you or someone you know is experiencing these symptoms, we can help. You are not alone.

Hear what one client has to say:
When I met with Ruth, she helped me through the feelings of depression and heaviness that I just could not shake, even years after my abortion. She was calm, comforting, and could relate to me.
A counselor will provide non-judgmental assistance to help clients receive the emotional healing they need. The client continues her story below:
I was not judged or made to feel ashamed. After completing counseling, a huge weight had been lifted from me – I felt like I had my life back! Now I wonder, ‘Why did I wait so long to seek this help?’ I recommend the abortion recovery counseling to anyone struggling with or thinking about a past abortion.”
