“The day after I had my abortion I found out my best friend was pregnant. I wanted to be happy for her, but I was sad. How am I going to be around her knowing I should have been going through the stages of pregnancy with her? It just keeps reminding me of my decision to terminate my baby.

I couldn’t stand the pain any more and found the Helpline number online. I was scared to call because I was feeling so bad. I finally called and the lady that answered was so nice and understanding. She listened to me without comment or judgement. It was if she knew how I felt. The lady gave me some local abortion recovery information for me to check out and explained I had started my healing journey. She encouraged me to keep moving and to take the next step in healing. I am so glad I called” S.
