Who is ARIN?

We're often asked, "Who is ARIN?" 

Many people think that our organization is named in honor of a child in Heaven. This is not the case. ARIN was established in 2003 by Christine Jackman and Stacy Massey as a network association to support those working in the field of Abortion Recovery.  Our original name for the organization was: Abortion Recovery International Network, which was later shortened in 2007 when we incorporated.

Because so many people knew us as ARIN, we felt the need to keep the acronym on some level. Thus: Abortion Recovery InterNational, Inc.

When Christine and Stacy looked up the name ARIN in a baby book, the meaning of the name Arin, was "enlightened".... which is exactly what we strive to do! 


Abortion Recovery InterNational is a non-profit 501c3 corporation.  Our tax identification number is: #37-1500799
