If you are looking for counselling before or after an abortion, please be aware that not all counsellors have an unbiased and balanced view. If a counsellor views abortion only in certain ways, you might feel judged, misunderstood, or receive inaccurate information. We don’t want this to happen to you!
Pro-choice counsellors and resources provide women with unbiased information and counselling services about abortion. They understand abortion is a common experience and that women have a wide variety of thoughts and feelings about it – sometimes negative, sometimes positive, sometimes both. If you are looking for counselling about abortion, it’s a good idea to ask the counsellor about their views before you meet them.
If an organization or counsellor does not use the word pro-choice to describe themselves, it is best to assume they are not. Some deliberately hide their bias against abortion – they know women won’t use their services if they speak out against reproductive choice. Those who are pro-choice will always say it.
No matter where you had your abortion, we offer post-abortion counselling for those seeking a compassionate and non-judgmental place to talk about an abortion experience. Please call 204-947-2422, ext. 221 to make an appointment.
*Note: This is for counselling only – no medical questions please.
