Take Action

I was 16, dating a cute boy, we had sex and I got pregnant.

My mom helped me figure out how to get an abortion, I paid for it with my savings account, an account I had been putting money into since I was 11.

It is an unremarkable story, but I want to share it because I have never once regretted having an abortion. I am 52 now and have 2 teen kids, I am a USMC veteran, I have a master’s degree, and I run a 3 million dollar NIH study at Notre Dame. Had I not been able to get an abortion at 16, where would I be at 52?

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