Someone you know....

 

I discovered this website that lists women's stories concerning abortion. I was shocked by how many women where using birth control (sometimes more than one form) and became pregnant. I believe that a woman has to make her own choice regarding abortion. I strongly believe that that choice should be protected. How can women plan their lives if they do not have control over the decision when and if to have children.

I pledge to speak out against the shaming of women who have had an abortion. I will help build a culture of empathy, justice, and support for access to abortion care and for the 1 in 3 women who will have an abortion in her lifetime. The silence and stigma end here.

Good for you. I'm exhausted with all the misinformation that's spread about the process. If our men could get pregnant, the concept of choice would be a sacrament.
Thank you.
