Abortion aftermath – Risks to Consider

After an abortion, many women, men, and other close family members experience one or more of the following emotional, spiritual, and relational consequences, some of which surface even years later following an abortion.

  • Flashbacks
  • Crying episodes
  • Feelings of guilt and shame
  • Feelings of loss and emptiness
  • Recurring dreams and nightmares
  • Anger, resentment, regret
  • Depression
  • Thoughts of suicide
  • Increased use of alcohol or drugs
  • Self-punishing/self-degrading behaviors
  • Feelings of inadequacy / low self-esteem
  • Sorrow, bitterness
  • Broken relationships
  • Sexual problems
  • Preoccupation with becoming pregnant again
  • Fear of punishment from God
  • Difficulty forgiving others
  • Lack of intimacy in relationships – distancing or isolation
  • Difficulty with commitment to people or tasks
  • No solid sense of one’s own identity

Researchers have identified these, and other symptoms of abortion aftermath, as Post-Abortion Syndrome.

If you have experienced one or more abortions, and have recognized a number of the above symptoms as things you have suffered, or are experiencing at this time, please know there are many support groups, retreats, or one-on-one counsel to help you work through these difficulties. Please turn to our Post-Abortion Healing pages for links to healing services throughout the United States and beyond.
