A woman’s decision

by Kathleen

I’ve had two abortions. Both felt like obvious decisions. I was very lucky that I knew that was an option for me. It was a hard experience. It’s hard mourning the loss of someone you can’t really tell people about. For my first abortion my college doctor referred me to a clinic. She asked me “what brings you here?” I froze not wanting to say the abortion words. She then said “you’re pregnant and you don’t want to be”. I of course said yes and felt finally understood. The right to have an abortion has given me the right to have a life. It’s given me the right to decide who I have children with and when I have them. Everyone should have that choice.

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