Six Year Reflection

by Anonymous

August 19, 2019

I was a senior in college and in a volatile relationship. I lost 15 pounds in six weeks because my morning sickness was so terrible. I was constipated for five weeks. I didn’t question whether abortion was right for me, because I knew it was.


The second I left the clinic, I was relieved, calmed, and empowered. Every now and then, I think about how grateful I am that I had an abortion, and reflect on my growth and all the things I’ve accomplished since then—it’s my way of remembering to trust myself and recognizing how strong women really are.

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