In 2017, the sexual health clinic provided 77 sessions of post-abortion counselling to those struggling after an abortion experience. The following year (2018), saw a startling spike in the demand for post-abortion counselling as the Cork clinic went on to provide 157 sessions of post-abortion counselling, almost double from the previous year.

Director of Services, Catherine Kennedy revealed that there has also been a spike in the demand for crisis pregnancy counselling, from 110 counselling sessions provided in 2017, to 141 sessions provided in 2018, according to The Irish Times.

Ramifications Of Repeal

It was in May of 2018 that Ireland overwhelmingly voted to strip unborn Irish children of legal protection through the repeal of the Eighth Amendment which lifted the country’s abortion ban.

Whilst official figures are yet to be released concerning Ireland’s 2018 abortion rate, it is estimated by the START group which represents 250 medical bodies involved in abortion provision, that since the country’s new abortion law came into effect, between 800-900 unborn Irish children are now killed every month by abortion.

As a result Ireland is now witnessing soaring demands for post-abortion counselling, as abortion has been shown to lead to bad mental health outcomes for many women.

Post Abortion: Symptoms And Seeking Help

The evidence-based review, Abortion and Women’s Health, reveals the truly horrific impact that abortion can have upon the mental health of some women, and makes evident why so many Irish women are now seeking post-abortive counselling after legalised abortion has come into effect.

Key findings from the review are that:

  • A woman who undergoes an abortion is six times more likely to commit suicide than a woman who gives birth.
  • A woman is 30% more likely to suffer from depression compared to a woman who gives birth.
  • A woman is 25% more likely to suffer from anxiety compared to a woman who gives birth.
  • A woman who has had an abortion is at a higher risk of psychiatric admission compared to a woman who gives birth.

Louise Grant, Director of Abortion Recovery Care and Helpline (ARCH), said: “The detrimental effects that abortion has upon the mental health of so many women is utterly devastating. So, it is saddening, yet not surprising to hear that so many Irish women are now seeking post-abortion care and counselling.”

Ms. Grant continued: “Abortion is so often pushed as a quick and easy fix, but the reality is far from that. Abortion often carries with it mental health issues and we often see symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder coming to the surface. Many women after an abortion can experience symptoms of depression, anxiety, stress and even substance abuse. It is vital that the emotions and experiences of these women are validated and they receive the care they deserve. It’s time for us to acknowledge the true impact that abortion is having upon the health and lives of countless women.”

The Good News


Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don’t have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.




  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
