Alternatives to Abortion Helplines
& Post-Abortion Resources


The PURPOSE OF THIS BROCHURE is two-fold: to provide resources to aid pregnant women in being aware of all the material and emotional support available to her so she can make an informed decision regarding abortion.  A second purpose is to inform concerned citizens of the help available to pregnant women and couples in order to have a true “choice” without being pressured into abortion through fear and/or desperation.

WHAT DO YOU SAY TO SOMEONE WHO TELLS YOU SHE HAS HAD AN ABORTION?

The gentleness and care with which you respond can make all the difference.

Then, be prepared by reading about Post-Abortion Stress Syndrome (PASS) and how to help women get healing help.

Locate a PASS group in your area, or help start one.

Read current research on abortion and its medical effects. [www.afterabortion.org]

At the pivotal moment when the woman acknowledges her abortion, "a voice of empathy & compassion with a simple ‘Oh, I am so sorry. Is there anything I can do?’ may help open a long-locked door just a bit".

Listen; don’t try to "solve" all her problems.

Make a "safe place for her to begin her journey of healing…you may be the very first person to whom she has ever spoken about her abortion. You can assure her that it is normal to find it very hard to talk about this… Introducing that idea may act as a kind of permission slip for some women to open up a little bit more. She may find it hard to believe that [anyone] could love the broken person in front of him or her and still hate the tragedy that made her that way…Most of her defensiveness is only a mask that hides deep pain."

Is it OK to gently ask questions? Yes. Ask her how long ago it all happened. And be sure you listen carefully to the answers. Let your discussion become a person-to-person moment. Help her to understand that you see her as a human being, not an abstraction… Then remind her that there are many women with similar experiences [about one in every four women]…" [Nat. Rt to Life News, Dec02, "Finding Just the Right Words" by Olivia Gans, American Victims of Abortion]

GET  THE  FACTS
Don’t act before you have all the facts about abortion!

We invite you to visit… www.physiciansforlife.org...for information about the physical and emotional complications that can occur after abortion.

If you or someone you know is considering abortion, the members of Alabama Physicians for Life, Inc., want you to ask questions, understand all the risks, and make an informed decision.


ALABAMA STATE LAW

“It is unlawful for any individual to coerce (force or pressure) you to undergo an abortion. Any physician who performs an abortion upon a woman without her informed consent may be liable to her for damages in a civil action of law.” [AL Act 02-419]
“There are many public and private agencies willing and able to help you to carry your child to term, and to assist you and your child after your child is born, whether you choose to keep your child or place him or her for adoption. The law requires that your physician or his or her agent give you the opportunity to call agencies like these before you undergo an abortion.” [AL Act 02-419]

 

ADOPTION 
IS  AN  ALTERNATIVE 
TO  ABORTION


Imagine a petite little girl running across a playground yelling, “Watch me, Mommy!”, as she heads for the swings. Her blue eyes light up and she smiles from ear to ear as she swings higher and higher. That’s my little girl! My husband and I adopted her when she was six weeks old and we all fell in love. Her laughter, energy and love for life have changed our world completely. When I hear her little voice say, “I love you, Mommy”, I am so grateful for her precious life! Every baby should have the chance to grow and laugh and play and be loved just like our sweet daughter. She has truly found her own special place in our hearts and in this world… [words of an adoptive mother]
