People are sometimes surprised to learn that abortion is so common, and so safe.
Abortion is a common experience. You deserve support!
And, it's normal
to have many different feelings after an abortion...

Abortion is one of the most common events experienced by women of reproductive age.

Sometimes an abortion can also bring up feelings about other experiences you've had, like adoption or miscarriage.

Our lives are complicated and our feelings can be too.
A recent study by researchers at the University of Ottawa found that women reflected positively on abortion care they had received in the province.
About a third of women in the study also wished that they could have received free, nonjudgmental support after their abortion.

Unfortunately, when they looked for support online, the places they found were often anti-abortion crisis pregnancy centres.
