The purpose of the current study was to explore how women with affiliation to the Catholic Church experience levels of traumatic stress post-abortion. The focus of this study was to find the influence of Catholic affiliation before, during, and after an abortion experience and mental health outcomes. In addition, to identify what risk and protective factors are involved. Results depicted narratives and significant findings that continue to support literature and form a well-rounded perspective when working with this population of women. Implications for clinicians working with this population are discussed.
