For decades, many of the organizations listed on this website have been working humbly and independently to help women and their families in their individual communities throughout Kansas. Until now, there hasn’t been a comprehensive website listing all the resources available to help pregnant Kansan women.
Many women who have had an abortion and now regret their abortion say they didn’t “choose” abortion, but rather felt they had no choice due to a perceived lack of support. Women need to know support and resources do exist!
Yes! Many of the organizations available through this online resource list support women while they are pregnant and most pregnancy help centers will help young families up to three years after the baby is born with parenting classes, baby supplies and other help.

It is common and natural for women to regret their abortion decision. You may have been pressured or not given full or accurate information before you made your decision. If you are struggling after an abortion, you can find healing and peace through confidential and non-judgmental healing retreats or one-on-one counseling sessions. Contact Project Rachel for more information.
It is against the law for anyone, regardless of their relationship to you, to force you to have an abortion. You have the right to contact any local or state law enforcement agency to receive protection from any actual or threatened physical abuse or violence. Contact a Pregnancy Help Center for advice or call the National Domestic Violence Hotline: 1-800-799-7233.
There is an effective process called “Abortion Pill Reversal” that can give your baby a second chance. It may not be too late to save your pregnancy, but timing is important. Call the Abortion Pill Reversal Hotline at 1-877-558-0333 today.
Some women choose to form an adoption plan for their baby instead of choosing to parent. If you are concerned about your ability to parent your baby, you may want to consider adoption. Forming an adoption plan is a loving and courageous option. Not only are you giving your child the precious gift of life, but you will be blessing a couple waiting to grow their family through adoption.
You will have the choice to have a relationship with your child and the adoptive family by choosing either a closed or an open adoption. Adoption is a personal and permanent decision with many factors to consider, and though being a birth mother is not always easy, it is truly an act of love. Learn more about adoption on the Resources page.
Many organizations across the state support their local communities, but technology has made collaborations possible so that women throughout the entire state can be supported and empowered during and after unexpected pregnancies. In addition, many churches want to support you with a caring community and material/spiritual needs. Reach out to your local faith community for a respected mentor and support system.
