Take Action

I had an abortion when I was 26 years old.

I was married and had a 2-year-old, but when I had a sponge failure I thought I would lose my mind if I had another child. My husband was super supportive, and I was able to go to Planned Parenthood early. So early in fact, that I had to wait a few weeks for the abortion. I had cramping, and it was not pleasant, but I never suffered mentally as many of those who are against reproductive rights would have you think. I had a safe procedure. I went on to have two other children and a stable family life. I was able to go back to school to obtain my BS in nursing and am now a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. I was luckier than so many women.

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