I Had an Abortion, Now What? FREE Support Classes in Sioux City, IA
Updated: Sep 15, 2022
You’ve made the decision to abort. Whether that is a recent decision, or one that's been a part of your story for awhile, it’s a decision that was meant to stay hidden, to be something you process and figure out on your own. Your pregnancy was meant to be in the past and stay there. But now, you’re living in a time where it seems like everybody’s talking about abortion.
The Supreme Court decision from June 2022 has flooded your social media pages with differing opinions. Walking through the grocery store, sitting in a restaurant, and even at school you overhear conversations. Your co-workers are talking about it, and so are your family and friends. Many of them may not know how close this hits home for you. Or maybe worse, they do, but they don’t care.
It seemed like prior to this year no one really talked about abortion, but now everybody is and you can’t escape seeing the headlines. Maybe you can’t stop the flood of emotions from hitting you each time you hear the “A” word. Or maybe you’ve become numb because feeling nothing is better than regret or shame.
Some of the voices you hear are denying your physical and emotional pain, disregarding the trauma you have experienced. Other voices are a heaping shame on you, making you feel broken, disposable, and useless.
WE WANT YOU TO KNOW - YOU MATTER HERE.
From women who are and have been in your shoes, know this – the pain you are experiencing is real. What you’ve gone through is traumatic, and rather than being able to process in your own time and in your own way, you’re forced to think about your pregnancy decision in places and situations you never thought you would.
At Her Health Women’s Center, we are here for you. We want to help you process what happened, to help you understand how you are feeling. We want you to find wholeness – to be mended of the brokenness you feel. We want to give you a safe space where you can be heard.
WE HAVE OPTIONS FOR YOU.
We recognize that healing looks different for everyone. That is why we have different options to help you begin a journey of healing. Our newest group class, Surrendering the Secret, is an 8 week class kicking off on Monday, September 19th. We also have online options and one-on-one counseling available. If one of these options interest you, you can contact us through our website chat, fill out our interest form or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Regardless of whether you reach out or not, we want you to know you are loved, you are not alone, and there is hope.
