SINCE 1973, OVER 55 MILLION ABORTIONS HAVE BEEN PERFORMED IN THE USA.
YET WHAT HAPPENS AFTER ABORTION IS RARELY DISCUSSED.
WE’RE GOING TO CHANGE THAT.
Initiative 180 is a movement dedicated to bring awareness to the largest demographic in our culture – those whose lives are adversely affected by a past abortion.
Abortion seems like the answer.
A chance to turn back the clock. After the crisis is over, a quick sense of relief from social stigma may occur, but then reality sets in. Your life is never the same as you close yourself off from the rest of the world in silence and guilt.
Abortion touches everyone.
It is a polarizing issue whose legal and moral implications are debated endlessly both in public media and private conversation. But what happens after an abortion, to the mother and father whose lives have been altered by the decision and procedure? To the grandparents and siblings who have lost a part of their family? Over the last forty years, more than 55 million abortions have been performed in the United States alone, with over 1.7 billion worldwide. Those are large numbers to fathom, but it translates to 3,000 abortions everyday (just in America).
The bottom line.
There are a huge number of people who suffer from a myriad of symptoms of Post-Abortion Stress. Yet what happens after an abortion are virtually never discussed due to the societal stigma surrounding this subject.
Our Mission: to break through the stigma and tear down the walls of silence so millions can find the help they need and the peace they desire from past decisions.

FROM THE BLOG
If you’re one of the slim majority that hasn’t had an abortion and you think it affects everyone “else,” well think again. Abortion’s cancerous fingers harms our entire culture in ways we haven’t fathomed.
As a counselor in private practice, I often see women who are dealing with relational commitment issues or decisions to have a child post abortion. Very often there is fear of commitment and guilt about moving on with their life.
The subject of terminating a pregnancy is an issue like no other, which places a woman in conflict with her very essence – the bringing forth of life. Since 1973, America, similar to many western cultures, have placed the needs of the individual above the needs of the group. We speak of individual rights and freedoms without realizing that all privileges come with responsibilities.
