Post Abortion Blues

by Hannah

November 23, 2020

I made the decision to get my abortion this morning and as I lay in bed I’m filled with stomach cramps and different heightened emotions. I’m privileged to have had the choice to make this decision about my body and what is best for my future but torn with a twinge of guilt. Seeing a woman standing outside of the clinic with anti-abortion signs as I walked out sore and tired gave me a feeling of unnecessary guilt. Reading posts and stories on this account is helping to change that shame into strength and validation that I made the right decision for myself. I am so fortunate for Planned Parenthood, they made this experience as stress free and comfortable as possible and made me feel safe in a time of crisis.

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