Common Myths

Women and men tend to believe they do not need to participate in PAG/T Support Group because their abortion was long ago or they have resolved the issue. 

Many struggle with self-forgiveness and anger and are often afraid to acknowledge their past abortion, fearing judgment and rejection. They feel alone in their pain, especially women and men of faith.
