Every human being is

more than a CHOICE.

 

We’re so glad you found us!

We hope you find strength and hope in knowing you’re not alone.

Behind the word “choice” is a person

You are more than a choice. So are we.

We’re someone’s son or daughter, grandchild, sibling, niece or nephew, cousin, friend, co-worker, neighbor. Many of us are someone’s spouse, someone’s parent.

We’re creating a community where there is hope and healing. You are not alone.

We’re abortion survivors.

We are a community. We have connected. We are a safe place for you. 

We’ve connected with 356 abortion survivors. We love being a part of the powerful transformation that happens as survivors connect with one another. In a culture that often feels unsafe to be a survivor, we’re a safe place for you.

We support every survivor’s journey

Every survivor’s life and story is valuable. We support you in your choice, if and how you ever share your story. We believe in the saying, “for the healing self to thrive, it must have a voice.”

We provide a voice for survivors who may never share their story publicly. Meet some of the survivors who provide a public voice:

Claire Culwell

Claire Culwell’s biological mother became pregnant with her at the age of 13. Her mother took her to an abortion clinic where she had a surgical abortion. A few weeks later she realized she was still pregnant.

Abortion Survivor, Melissa Ohden

In 1977 Melissa Ohden’s biological mother was a 19-year-old college student when she had a saline infusion abortion that was meant to end Melissa’s life.

Help. Hope. Humanize.

 We provide help, hope and a voice to abortion survivors, those who are silenced and impacted by abortion. We aim to build a culture in which every human is seen as more than a choice.

Share Your Story

Your contact with us is confidential. If you’re an abortion survivor and would like to share your story with us, we’d love to hear from you. If you would like to someday share your story, we can help you in amplifying your voice.

We’re Here

For you!

We offer social support, healing support, and assist survivors searching for birth or adoption records or biological family. We also equip survivors with training and opportunities to share their story if they are so inclined.
