In the waiting room journal I wrote, “I got pregnant with an IUD. This isn’t fair”.

Read Story

I don’t regret my abortions, but I do regret that I did not demand the agency to make the choice for myself. 

Read Story

…it’s been two days after my surgical abortion and I feel positive that it was the right decision.

Read Story

I’ve known since I was 12 that I had no desire to be a mother.

Read Story

I hope no woman ever feels ashamed for doing what is best for them.

Read Story

“I realized that there are so many different reasons why a woman would choose to end her pregnancy.”

The truth is that we comfortably make consequential decisions every day.

The shame we are still being coaxed into is a mirage

Read Story

I got to choose when and with who I had children with. My body, my life, my choice.

I NEVER regret our decision. I had an abortion and I would do it again.

Society always taught me that abortion was wrong but I have come to realize that mentality is so wrong.

@NARAL prez made history telling her #abortion story @ #DemConvention. Thank you @ilyseh! ???????? #DemsInPhilly #ReproJustice #ShoutYourAbortion

I think having an abortion is one of the ONLY things I don't regret. #ShoutYourAbortion

I'm proud that I worked for @PPFA for 4 years & helped numerous women with the choice that was right for them. #shoutyourabortion

Shout out for #ShoutYourAbortion and #BlackLivesMatter at #LMDA16 ‑‑ hashtag activism leading to off‑line personal connection.

I challenge all #abparty #wrp #ablib #pcaa #abndp to #ShoutYourAbortion and collectively stop the stigma. #1in3 women have abortions #ableg

Thanks to speakers for sharing their abortion stories in support of our Oakland CPC false advertising ordinance. #shoutyourabortion

#ShoutYourAbortion Women I love have had #Abortions. #noShame #trustWomen

ummmMMMM where can I get one of those "everyone knows I had an abortion" shirts? love being unashamed, unafraid! #ShoutYourAbortion

#Abortion is a responsible choice. Abortion is moral, good and normal. #ShoutYourAbortion #MyDecision

I was 15, in an abusive relationship and household and I spent all my money so I could save my life. #ShoutYourAbortion

Abortion is moral. Abortion is good. Abortion saves lives. Abortion gives hope and opportunity. #ShoutYourAbortion & protect #ReproRights

Hello. We are here. We are just the people you know. And we are not asking for your permission. #shoutyourabortion

"What if you walked up on this on a 1st date? You'd probably talk about abortion." Talk about abortion before you bone! #shoutyourabortion

Thanks @chelseahandler for #ShoutYourAbortion! 1 in 3 women have had them, the shaming is so misogynistic

19, in college, no job, no funds; vs. now happily married with 4 great kids. Never had a regret. #shoutyourabortion

I'm so grateful for #ShoutYourAbortion, which has connected me with so many stories/ppl that I no longer feel like an outcast or a wrongdoer

I had a abortion. Not sorry not damaged not silenced #ShoutYourAbortion #smashstigma

Loving and admiring women who #ShoutYourAbortion...! My body, my life, my choice!

We already punish women who choose abortion. (by @ameliabonow) #ShoutYourAbortion

I won't be shamed & I #WontBePunished. This kind of rhetoric is killing women. No more. NO MORE. #ShoutYourAbortion

I had an abortion. It saved my life. I have since saved many lives. Abortions save lives. Get over it #shoutyourabortion

#shoutyourabortion is such an important campaign ❤️

I'm such a fan of the #shoutyourabortion hashtag. Yes! Women should stop being ashamed and speak out!

One in three American women will had an abortion in their lives. Are we all supposed to be ashamed? #shoutyourabortion

#ShoutYourAbortion because you shouldn't have to feel alone

No shame, no guilt, no regret. No more stigma. #ShoutYourAbortion

I've had two abortions. No need to justify why I "deserved" the right. My health. My body. My life. My choice. #Roe43 #shoutyourabortion

"It's because of my abortion I get to stand here and know that I'm a great mother now, on my own terms." #shoutyourabortion

Tell your story. It's yours to tell. Those who try to silence you don't have all the information. You do. #shoutyourabortion

I did not want to have his child. Thank god I didn't have to. I am very lucky. #shoutyourabortion

No regrets, no justification, no shame. #shoutyourabortion #togetherforabortion

Abortion rights do not just affect cis women. Non Binary people and Trans men are affected as well. #TogetherForAbortion #ShoutYourAbortion

Don't call it an abortion debate. What women do with their own bodies was never the public's place to debate about. #ShoutYourAbortion

#ShoutYourAbortion I love this movement. One out of three women get abortions. & no it's not always "tragic". Stay strong! You're not alone

My daughter exists only because I was able to end an infected pregnancy/ start over. Grateful. http://tinyurl.com/ncv6mte #shoutyourabortion

I was 20, attending community college. Not prepared to parent. I'm now 38, have a master's degree, childless by choice. #ShoutYourAbortion

The law has never been able to prevent abortions. It has only been able to change how people can access safe abortions. #shoutyourabortion

I was 20, in school and my bc failed. I did not want a child. It was the right choice and I've never regretted...

Had an abortion at 18, went on complete 2 degrees & live a fulfilling life. It was right decision in my circumstances. #ShoutYourAbortion

18 & broke + pregnant = bad. Abortion + 3yrs later + married + stable job = a great life for my baby. #ShoutYourAbortion

I could not have given that child the life it deserved. I would not have been the mother I want to be. #ShoutYourAbortion #IStandWithPP

My birth mother put me up for adoption. Her autonomy was respected. I provide abortions b/c I respect that autonomy. #shoutyourabortion

I've had 2 abortions. I don't have to justify or explain them to anybody. My life is more valuable than a potential life. #shoutyourabortion

My abortion was in '10 & the career I've built since then fulfills me & makes me better able to care for kids I...

My abortion was in '07. I didn't want kids then and still don't. I'm managing my own wellness. #ShoutYourAbortion

Ex partner of 4 yrs forced me into 2 abortions. My life is better now but only through the support of PP.#IStandWithPP #ShoutYourAbortion
