**Note: If you are an organization who is interested in this material, please send us a short note at info@gracestream.ca and let us know how this material benefited you, as an encouragement to us.**

You are not alone.
Millions of other women have the same feelings.
Hear what they say, what the experts say, and how you can have a new life.

No matter what you’ve faced, no matter how you’re hurting, no matter how distant you feel from yourself or the people you love, it’s possible to move forward. We can help.

The emotional recovery from an abortion can often be harder than the physical recovery from the procedure itself. After an abortion, you may feel relieved, but you may also feel grief, guilt, even anger and depression. You may have trouble connecting with other people, or even sorting out your own thoughts and emotions. It can be devastating.

You’re not alone; you’re not abnormal. Many women (and men) who’ve had abortions, or been part of the difficult decision to abort a pregnancy, experience unexpected harm to their emotional health–and that harm needs healing.

GraceStream offers referrals for free emotional guidance and support for women and men who have been directly affected by the emotional consequences of abortion. If you, or someone you love, are in need of post-abortion support, contact us today and take the first step toward hope.

“If you’ve lived with your hidden feelings for 10, 20, or even 30 years, it’s time to get release.”

The pain of one’s abortion does not go away. It can last until one dies. There is release.  There is healing.


“Decades after induced abortion was instilled in the culture, most women are still not aware of the risks of this most commonly performed procedure. This documentary will help to ensure that all women have accurate information before making their choice.”
– Donna Harrison, M.D., Executive Director, American Association of Prolife Obstetricians and Gynecologists.

“The research of the emotional risks of abortion come to life as you hear the heart-wrenching stories of these survivors.”
– Priscilla K. Coleman, Ph.D., Professor of Human Development and Family Studies.

“No man or parent will be able to pressure a woman into an abortion after watching this documentary.”
– Byron C. Calhoun, MD, FACOG, FACS, MBA, Professor, Obstetrics & Gynecology.

“Unspoken grief, unresolved loss, relentless sorrow, regret and pain – many women live with these and more after abortion. The silence must be broken.  Wounded and Abandoned challenges our society to protect women, inform women and for the love of God, offer them life-supporting options.”
– Jakki Jeffs, E.D., Alliance for Life Ontario.

“The information and stories of the post-abortive women are brilliant and riveting. Human story speaks into human reality. It is through another’s story that valuable moral lessons are gleaned; stories that often refute theory or reason as it relates to legalized abortion and give us a firm grip on reality. Who can refute the facts or one’s own story? Human suffering always demands an ear. … Question is, are we prepared to listen…and do the right thing?”
– James Anderson, Senior Pastor, Toronto, Ontario.

“This is absolutely an outstanding documentary. It is very compelling. The witness of the women in it and Dr(s). Zeni and Barrie deVeber, very impressive. The work is just outstanding; God will bless it. I so believe that because you can see the pain and suffering in the women. It’s been inspired and its just gripping.”
– Jean Echlin, award-winning palliative care professor and researcher for end-of-life matters.

“It’s a fantastic tool. The ‘consent’ portion is very powerfully done and gets the students talking.”
– Bev Hadland, author, counselor, founder of Straight Talk, and youth speaker.

“My husband and I watched the video together and we agreed it was awesome. It is very well done. It’s factual; non-biased; nobody can argue with the facts.”
– Janice Russell, Director, Markham Stouffville Crisis Pregnancy Centre.
