A Thank You Letter

March 13, 2019

I love this movement!  Thank you for supporting women who have gone through an abortion.  I have never told any of my loved ones about my abortion.  I am afraid to be judged and rejected and just feel like I did something wrong and that I would need forgiveness.  But honestly, I feel happy about my decision to have an abortion.  I was able to finish school, get a great job and feel financially secure.  I don’t think I would be where I am today if I had carried the pregnancy to full-term.  I don’t think I’m ready to wear the “Everyone Knows I Had An Abortion” t-shirt but I like the message that it is trying to say…that our friends and family support our decision to have an abortion and will love us, no matter what.

Thank you for creating this support group.  Love to all who have shared their story.

Remember that our stories are ours to tell. We’d love to hear your story too!
