An Empowering Choice

To my knowledge, I am the first in my family line to have an abortion. I was raised to believe that my job on earth was to be a mother. I was told that ending life in the womb is the same as murder and that abortion was not an option. Many women in my family have endured unwanted pregnancies and I’m sad that they didn’t feel like they had a choice. When I think about the abortion I had last year, it feels like I’ve broken generational cycles and chosen myself, for the first time in my family’s history. I look back on the decision fondly and I am so grateful I had the resources to choose an abortion.

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