Has a past abortion left you hurting?

If you've aborted a child recently or even years ago, then you may often feel a burden that just won't go away. In fact, health care professionals across the country are seeing more and more people who are suffering from a condition known as post abortion syndrome (PAS).

In addition to possible physical problems, deeply rooted guilt associated with a past abortion can manifest itself through a myriad of seemingly unrelated emotional symptoms.
