Connect & Breathe
If you have had an abortion, you are not alone.
One third of all women in the United States will have an abortion in their lifetime. Women of all ages, income brackets, education levels, sexual orientation, religious preferences and family situations make the decision to have an abortion every day. The reasons for these decisions may be similar in some respects, but each situation is as unique as the individual who makes this decision.
The feelings you have after your abortion may be varied; sadness, relief, anxiety, happiness, grief and guilt. These feelings may change in type and intensity over time. These feelings are normal.
At Connect & Breathe we know finding the right person to talk to after having had an abortion may be difficult. We are here to listen.
Whether your abortion occurred yesterday or years ago, our goal is to help you feel connected in a positive way with your decision and find peace.
Connect & Breathe provides a talk-line staffed by people trained to listen and help you find peace. We trust you and your choice. We can help by simply listening or providing you with other resources in your area – both religious and non-religious – who can also help you connect with your decision in a way that affirms you.
