If you have texted us, we welcome you to take the Textline Survey.
The free, nonjudgmental Exhale Pro-Voice textline offers high-quality emotional support, information, and resources for all people after their abortions. The textline is also available to partners, parents, family members, friends, and allies – including mental health clinicians, abortion providers, doulas, and others offering abortion-related care. All texts are completely confidential.
At Exhale Pro-Voice, we know that there is no “right” way to feel after an abortion. We also know that feelings of happiness, sadness, empowerment, anxiety, grief, relief, and guilt are common. Abortions can be hard to talk about and finding the right person to talk with can be difficult. Exhale Pro-Voice provides the opportunity to talk with someone who supports and respects you, in a safe and confidential environment.
