Help After Abortion (Project Rachel)

Chances are that if you are visiting this page you have had an abortion or know someone who has.

Abortion is a life changing event that affects many individuals emotionally, spiritually and physically. You may have experienced the need to find healing right after your abortion or, for some of you, it may have taken many years to come to this place.

The truth is that you have suffered a traumatic loss - and that loss is real.

With abortion, society does not provide a public way to grieve this loss. With no way to process this loss, the wound caused by abortion often remains unhealed and becomes a secret sorrow carried alone and without support.

You may be suffering from guilt, sadness, isolation, nightmares, addictions, eating disorders, anxiety or other negative emotions and behaviors. Many women and men are surprised at the emotions they experience after abortion which can include but certainly are not limited to those mentioned above.

It is important to know that you are not alone. We want to reach out to you with the mercy and love of Christ and help you be at peace with yourself and God.

There is hope. There is help. If you or someone you know is suffering after abortion, please contact Project Rachel at 703-841-2504 or email

For men suffering from a decision to abort their children, please contact our confidential men's helpline: 703-841-3833.

Project Rachel also organizes "Entering Canaan" Day of Prayer and Healing, a healing retreat for those suffering from abortion. Upcoming retreats dates are Saturday, March 20, 2021 and Saturday, October 16, 2021. Retreats are available in both English and Spanish on the same day at the same location.
