The choice that everyone needs

by Anonymous

August 17, 2022

I was 24 years old fresh graduate, earned myself a job and had my life “together” in society’s eyes. When I found out I was pregnant, my job fired me immediately and was kicked out of my parent’s house. Fortunately my partner and I took this situation into our own hands. It was hard getting the planned parenthood appointment because the anxiety and fear was heavy on my head, “what if they don’t pick up? What if it’s too late? What if they make me too uncomfortable to not do it?” What had spiked my anxiety more was that same week, they announced on TV that Roe vs Wade is challenged to be overturned. My mind was set in stone, I got my abortion. I want more women to have that choice without the anxiety and fear of it taken away from them.

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