The emotional impact that is sometimes experienced by both women and men after an abortion experience can be a heavy burden to carry. Symptoms of post abortion trauma are similar to those in any post traumatic stress disorder. The uncomfortable feelings associated with an abortion may not appear all together, nor will each woman or man possess all of them and they could appear over time.
There is a way through this and there is hope. If you have any questions or would like to know more, you can contact ARCH for more information or to speak to someone in confidence.
