I have been fortunate in my life to have never been in a situation that I needed an abortion, but believe me, if I had, I would have gratefully taken that option. Not having access to safe, legal abortions keeps women down in all senses. Keeps them in poverty. Keeps them in shame. Keeps them out of the workforce. Keeps them uneducated. Keeps them guilty. Keeps them judged.
I stand for a woman’s right to abortion. I stand for a woman’s right to choose her own destiny. To choose when and at what life stage she starts a family – if indeed she even wants to start a family.
