HOW DO I HELP SOMEONE WHO HAS HAD AN ABORTION?
Nobody likes to talk about abortion – the conversation can be very emotionally charged. But we believe it’s so important to provide a safe place to talk about abortion, to have a healing conversation.
Any pregnancy loss brings grief. Women who have terminated their pregnancy also experience this grief, except it may be suppressed for reasons such as shame or fear of judgment.
We believe the first and best response is T.E.A.R.S.
T – Talk – Be a safe place and let her tell her story
E – Empathy – Acknowledge that her pain is real
A – Awareness – Be aware that this type of grief and loss is unique
R – Refer – Help her find a pregnancy care centre or someone equipped to counsel her trauma and grief
S – Support – Support her throughout her journey
BE THE DIFFERENCE TODAY
Behind each fear, lies hope. Behind each challenge, is an opportunity.
Help transform someone’s world today. It’s easier to do when we do it together.
