I got an abortion, how I am supposed to feel


Abortions are very common. About one in five pregnancies (excluding miscarriages) in 2014 ended in abortion. This means that you probably know someone who has had an abortion (a sister, friend, aunt, cousin, mother, granmother , neighbor)

You may have a range of feelings about your abortion, and that's ok. Some people feeel relief, some feel sadness, some feel very mixed emotions. You might even feel different things at different times. We know what this can be like, and there are some resources for you if you want to talk.



If you'd like to talk with someone in person, please feel free to call PPNYC to make an appointment with a social worker at 212-965-7000

We also recommend these resources that you may find supportive:
