Unexpected pregnancy comes with a lot of emotions and feelings. We empower women with knowledge to make her best decision.
No normal thinking woman wants to have an abortion. She considers it because of difficult circumstances, and she can’t clearly see any other option.

The American Psychological Association stated that women suffering from abortions had psychological issues to begin with and that post-abortion trauma does not exist. However, Dr. David Reardon of the Elliot Institute has been studying post abortion in women for more than 25 years. His findings are quite the opposite. Dr. Reardon's studies prove that abortion hurts women. Because it's a legal right to 'choose,' women are not allowed to grieve but should just suck it up and move on. Therefore, many women keep their abortions a secret and suffer in silence. But, they don't have to...
