Signposts: Thoughts About God After an Abortion


Even though many people may not feel strongly connected to a “religion,” most individuals do have thoughts about God. If you have experienced an abortion, have you felt a change in your relationship or concept of God? Do you think God feels differently about you?

Abortion is not only a medical, physical experience. Thinking, emotions and feelings can be affected as well. If a spiritual faith has been part of your life in the past, what does your relationship with God look like now?

It’s not unusual after an abortion to have a sense of longing for forgiveness, including from God. Or sometimes we hear “I know that God forgives me, but I can’t forgive myself.” If this describes you, or if you’d like to talk about God and your abortion with someone else who has experienced it, we want to help you. We are here and we care.
