How Do I Know if I Need Help?

If you answer "yes" to two or more of these questions, please call us for an appointment today.
  1. Are you reluctant to talk about the abortion?
  2. Are you experiencing depression or feelings of unworthiness?
  3. Do you feel guilt, anger, shame or sorrow in relation to your abortion(s)?
  4. Are you experiencing difficulty in building or maintaining close relationships?
  5. Have you noticed a pattern of destructive behaviors in your life?
  6. Are you struggling with an eating disorder or food addiction?
  7. Do you have feelings of bitterness, anger or resentment toward those involved in your abortion?
  8. Are you using drugs or alcohol in order to cope?
  9. Do you avoid sexual intimacy or struggle with promiscuity?
  10. Do you have nightmares, dreams or flashbacks of the abortion?
  11. Does the anniversary month of the abortion or your due date disrupt your life each year?


It was supposed to be a quick fix.......the only way to keep your life on track. But as hard as you try, the memories of your abortion won't stay buried.


If you are visiting this page, the probability is that you have been touched by an abortion sometime in your life. If you are struggling with the after-effects of an abortion such as feelings of loss, grief, guilt or regret, or recurring nightmares, depression, thoughts of suicide, relationship problems, attempts to numb your pain through the use of drugs, alcohol, sex, or food, you have come to the right place.


Whether "it" happened recently or many years ago, these feelings may be weighing on your heart. You might not even realize what areas of your Life have been effected by what seemed at the time to be your only choice.

Afterwards

 If abortion  is your final choice…. we still  remain an advocate for you!
        

  •  Although the services Lc Clinic offers does NOT include abortion, or  referrals for abortion, we honor your right to choose, and do NOT profit from  whatever choice you make.


  • If you do choose to abort, you may need support and care AFTER  your abortion.


  • You may need a place where you can come for help; a place with no  ties to your abortion procedure and/or experience.    

    

Your  choice for abortion may provide great relief initially. However, you may  experience what many women have faced days, months and years after their  abortion. Many women carry an incredible burden, while wearing smiles on their  faces. You may, as others do, struggle for years with repressed memories,  guilt, shame, and depression. Most women feel they are not allowed to talk  about their abortion experience because it was their “choice.” Don’t let this happen to you!


 Lc Clinic services include abortion recovery support.
 If you are  struggling with a past abortion experience, either recently or long ago, we can  help. 


Make an appointment today to meet with a caring Lc Clinic peer counselor to learn more about our after abortion support.
