“In our country’s discussion of abortion, one group of women remains largely unseen: mothers. An assumption persists that abortion services are used largely by teenage girls and young, childless women. But mothers are in fact the majority of patients. Many of these women know what it means to be a parent. They have stayed up all night with a colicky baby, planned birthday parties and holiday gatherings, and juggled jobs and child care. And when they become pregnant unexpectedly, they think about what another child would mean for their family. Their reasons for terminating a pregnancy are complex, from the state of their relationship, to personal finances, to reluctance to add another child to their family. For them, abortion is the choice that makes the best, or only, sense. . . . Still, the subject of moms having abortions remains taboo, even though the most recent numbers available indicate that 59 percent of women having abortions—nearly six in ten women—are mothers, according to the Guttmacher Institute. Approximately 1 million abortions are performed in this country every year and while an estimated three in ten women will terminate a pregnancy in their lifetime, many will remain silent. Increasingly, though, women are sharing their experiences to de-stigmatize abortion, such as with the grassroots hashtag campaign .” . . . Thank you to the wonderful and courageous mom who anonymously shared this personal quote with me. It is SO important to recognize that having an abortion is one of the million things that is PART of being good parent. Please, fiercely support your fellow parents who have had or are having an abortion and are already parenting. Let them know they are dearly loved, and that they are incredible ❤️ . . . https://www.parents.com/parenting/i-m-a-mom-and-i-had-an-abortion/ . .

“My husband and I already had two young daughters when I had my abortion. We had just gotten to the point where both of our kids were in school and I was able to work more when our birth control failed. I didn’t want more children and I’ve never regretted my decision. I haven’t hidden the fact that I’ve had an abortion, but I’ve been selectively forthcoming. I have family members who are “pro-life” and I’ve occupied this strange headspace where I simultaneously feel sorry for their ignorance, but also fear their judgment, so I’ve talked generally about abortion, not personally. With all of the attacks on women’s health, I’m more afraid that other women won’t (because some already don’t) have the same choices I did. My daughters are teenagers now and I want them to have the same rights that I did.  My abortion was good for me and it was good for my family. It was safe. It was professional. It was accessible. All women deserve the same.” . . . . . . https://shoutyourabortion.com/writing/my-abortion-was-good-for-me-and-my-family/

Whether it’s your first abortion, or your fifth. Whether you’re already a mom or you’re not. Whether you consented to sex or you didn’t. Whether you used protection or you didn’t. Whether you’re 15 or 45. Whether you have the money to take care of a baby or you don’t. Whether you are a person of faith or you’re not. Whether you want kids someday or you don’t. . . . None of these conditional statements should matter when it comes to your right to abortion and the fact that you deserve to be loved. You are SO worthy of wholeness and love. You are worthy of a community that supports you and lifts you up. 💕 . . .

I get a lot of questions about what people should do with their pregnancies, and my response for them is this: I can’t tell you what to do, but I can say do what feels right for you, regardless of what the people around you say. You know what’s best for your body and your life. What I would recommend is take some time to listen to your heart and contemplate what you want for your life, your goals, and your values, and try and land on a decision that your heart feels is right (even if you think others will disagree). I promise it’s more important to follow your heart, and find community with others who have similar life experiences, than it is to do something you don’t want to do just because you’re afraid of what other think. There are lots of virtual and in-person support through various organizations for whatever you choose. . . .

A note to people who’ve had an abortion: Hey there. You are so very loved. I know it might not feel like it sometimes, with protestors and preachers haranguing you with atrocious messages. You might hold pain in your heart from your faith community ostracizing you, or your family and friends spewing anti-abortion sentiments while you sit quietly with your secret, or the discomfort from having to lie to your coworkers about where you were when you had your appointment that day, but know that I see you. I see you for all the glory of who you are, the radiance in your smile, the warmth of your heart, and power of your brilliant mind. And I am sending love to you, to wherever you are in this moment, and I hope you open yourself to receive that love. It doesn’t matter to me why you had an abortion, it just matters that you are here right now, and you deserve to be happy and to feel whole. And if you believe in God, know that you deserve her love just as much as any other person on this earth . .

A little over 6 months ago, Ireland repealed its cruel and draconian law which banned abortion in almost all circumstances. Thousands and thousands of Irish citizens came home JUST to vote in favor of abortion rights. 66.4% of Irish came out of the repeal. 💕✊🏻 . . . The Irish prime minister said of that day: “It’s a day when we say no more. No more to doctors telling their patients there’s nothing can be done for them in their own country, no more lonely journeys across the Irish Sea, no more stigma as the veil of secrecy is lifted and no more isolation as the burden of shame is gone.” . . . And on January 1, 2019, Ireland’s women gained the right to safe, legal, and free abortion up to 12 weeks. There’s a lot more work to do to get that expanded, and ensure all people in Ireland can actually access abortion, but it’s a grand victory nonetheless. Ireland has finally seen what we all know: the human rights are women’s right, and women’s right are human rights. . . .

“Even if we all decided to define personhood to include fertilized eggs and embryos and fetuses, they would not have the right to use a woman’s body against her will and at whatever cost to herself. Persons are NOT entitled to use one another like that.” . . . No one, including an embryo/fetus, has the right to use your body against your will. Abortion is the rightful revocation of consent to continue a pregnancy, and will forever be just, moral, and essential to personal autonomy. . . .

Your dream might be to be a CEO. Or it might not be. Your dream might be to have a huge wedding. Or it might not be. Your dream might be to be a parent. Or it might not be. Whatever you dream is, it’s valid, and nothing should force you to give it up unless that’s what YOU want to do. . . . I dream of a world where no woman feels shamed or alone because of her decision to end her pregnancy. . . .

“Often when somebody has an abortion, it’s the same celebration, it’s the same joy, it’s the same relief that is present when I’m helping a woman have a baby,” said Dr. Yashica Robinson, who maintains a private OB-GYN practice in Huntsville, Alabama, while also providing abortion care at the Alabama Women’s Center. “Being able to be there for women, allowing them to exercise their right to choose, and then seeing their relief and gratitude when they leave the clinic … it’s overwhelming.” . . . If this is the joy you need - the joy of freedom, know that it is truly yours for the taking.

“Abortion is often spoken of as a terrible physical hardship, but I have a slightly different perspective. In my early twenties I had a medication abortion. A few years later I got terrible food poisoning. Both may have involved stomach pain and vomiting, but the latter was much more painful and extreme. I returned to having sex shortly after my abortion, but I haven’t been able to look at chicken curry salad since.” . . . Ninety-five percent of women who have had abortions do not regret the decision to terminate their pregnancies. . . . So, lo and behold, letting women be in charge of their own bodies actually makes women happy! . . . https://www.glamour.com/story/was-i-supposed-to-regret-my-abortion-because-i-dont http://time.com/3956781/women-abortion-regret-reproductive-health/

Politicians have used the Hyde Amendment, which denies coverage for abortion care for those insured through Medicaid, to interfere in women’s health decisions. For those who are struggling to make ends meet—including people of color, low-income women, young folks, queer folks, trans folks and immigrants and refugees—a coverage ban might as well be a ban on abortion all together. . . . But with a record number of Democratic women elected to office in November and their party holding the majority in the House next year, momentum is building to lift this ban. . . . Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) told ThinkProgress she will re-introduce the EACH Woman Act for the second time next year; the legislation ensures that anyone who gets health care through the federal government will have coverage for abortion services and that legislators cannot interfere with what private insurance covers. . . .

Let's be very clear about this: when a woman finds herself pregnant due to violence and chooses an abortion, it is the violence that is the tragedy; the abortion is a blessing. . When a woman finds that the fetus she is carrying has anomalies incompatible with life, that it will not live and that she requires an abortion often a late-term abortion to protect her life, her health, or her fertility, it is the shattering of her hopes and dreams for that pregnancy that is the tragedy; the abortion is a blessing. . When a woman wants a child but can't afford one because she hasn't the education necessary for a sustainable job, or access to health care, or day care, or adequate food, it is the abysmal priorities of our nation, the lack of social supports, the absence of justice that are the tragedies; the abortion is a blessing. . And when a woman becomes pregnant within a loving, supportive, respectful relationship; has every option open to her; decides she does not wish to bear a child; and has access to a safe, affordable abortion there is not a tragedy in sight only blessing. The ability to enjoy God's good gift of sexuality without compromising one's education, life's work, or ability to put to use God's gifts and call is simply blessing. . These are the two things I want you, please, to remember abortion is a blessing and our work is not done. . --Reverend Katherine Ragsdale, President and Dean Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, MA .

“The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours - it is an amazing journey - and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins.” . . . . . I liken this to best version of self care ever - the determination of self and self-direction. We often live our lives for others, and while service may call upon our hearts, we truly exude power and grace when we know that we are both in control and DESERVE to be in control of our lives. That we do not owe anyone our love, our time, or our body, but rather give it to them as a gift of self. Hold that power within you, and know that your life is your own.

You know that moment when the sun is setting and the sky is streaked with pinks and reds and oranges and you feel like you could burst from the smile that’s radiating from inside of you, the gratefulness for the beauty of that moment? For me, that’s true freedom. In those moments I exhude gratitude for my life, for my opportunities, and for the ability to have made the choices I did that placed me in that spot at that moment. We all deserve that chance to feel free, and to know we are meant to be where we are now. Knowing that these choices we have made have brought us to this moment of joy, and feeling happy to have made them as we did.

Reminder that women are NOT a public commodity. You cannot regulate their bodies as though they were a cigarette, or gas, or a car. They have hopes and dreams and have the right to control their own bodies, and deserve to do so WITHOUT having to listen to the opinions of millions of other people telling them what to do.
