What is Abortion Really About?

Abortion is not just a termination of pregnancy. It is a procedure that removes a baby who would like to live.
Numerous counselling interviews with women that had an abortion reveal: abortion carries a high risk of prolonged grief and sadness. A lot of women subsequently wish to make an abortion undone. The statements on this page tell their own tale.
The Swiss Aid for Mother and Child (SAMC) counsels and helps women, couples and families who get into serious difficulties due to an unplanned pregnancy. Together with the people affected it searches for solutions that remove the problems. This service is confidential, professional, and free of charge.
Testimony of women who were in despair and have received counselling and help from the SAMC:
 
 
Ria: «I am so happy that the SAMC is here, and really helps. … Today I am so glad that I have my child. Whenever I look at her, I feel so guilty that I almost aborted her.»
 
Lea: «My son is the greatest gift that I have ever received. I am speechless, nobody has ever helped me in my life. It is Christmas for me! I thank you from the bottom of my heart and send you a huge hug.»
 
Zoe: «You supported me so well that I have been able to say yes to my child.»
 
Pia: «Thank you for everything! It is wonderful that you are here to help!»
 
Gina: «That the SAMC was always there for me gave me the security and confidence to decide for my baby.»
 
Emma: «Without your support, I wouldn’t have got through both of those conflicts … I haven’t regretted not going through with the abortion for one second.»
