While mainstream media and society at large sees abortion as a “woman’s choice” – and something that’s a “simple medical procedure,” many women are deeply wounded by their decision to have an abortion.  Most women will feel a sense of relief immediately after the abortion (although many of these women also report waking up crying uncontrollably after their procedure) – but over time their lives start to fall apart.

Because of this delay, many women have no idea that their abortion is what’s behind the unhealthy behavior that can follow an abortion – and they will struggle and suffer for years because they don’t know what’s at the source of their pain.  For those women who are able to link their current struggles with an abortion, the vast majority of them will suffer in silence because they either can’t find someone who will validate their pain and help them work through the healing process – or they don’t know that there is help available.

Real Choices Chula Vista is committed to helping women not just survive abortion – but thrive in the freedom that is available through a relationship with Jesus!
