Take Action

I was date raped.

I was doing political work with a specific movement. I was in my first week of acupuncture school. I had worked hard to be in school for a long time and I did not intend to be raped by someone I knew who forced himself upon me. I knew I needed to have an abortion. And it is only through the services at Planned Parenthood that I was able to get one.

I would have been bound to someone who had abused me for the rest of my life through a child who was the product of an unwanted sexual encounter had I not been able to access an abortion. My mother believed so much in a woman’s ability to choose that she came out to be with me and support me through the abortion.

I would not have been able to have an abortion had it not been safe and legal at Planned Parenthood.

Everyone should be able to decide if, when, how, and with whom they start or grow a family.
