I want abortion to be normalized

I never felt much difficulty with telling my friends about my abortion, but coming out in a completely open forum is cathartic. I remember when I found out I was pregnant, the NP at my OB/GYN office said I should discuss it with my boyfriend before making any decisions. I went to my car and cried and then made an appointment when I was done crying. It was a one night stand, and I do not feel ashamed of that now, but I sure as hell did then. I want abortion to be normalized; I want it to be a quality of life procedure that involves one person only unless that person chooses to involve another individual.

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