After Abortion Care

Here at the Community Pregnancy Center, we care for those who have been hurt by their abortion decision. This condition is called post-abortion stress syndrome or PASS. Even though abortion is a legal procedure and an option for women, the risks and future consequences of that decision are often not adequately discussed. Also, experience and time has shown that many women are not prepared for the possible changes to their lives in response to their abortion. In many situates, the physical and emotional impact does not become evident for years.
