I had an abortion

Every unique abortion story that is shared empowers women and pregnant people around the world to exercise their sexual and reproductive rights.

Not all pregnancies are good news; they can sometimes be scary and unwanted. Around 121 million unintended pregnancies occur every year, and of these, 73 million end up in an abortion, yet we don't talk enough about abortions.

Abortions are common, they are normal and they are OK - and there's nothing wrong with having one. Every unfiltered story shared below breaks the silence around abortions and shows that abortions happen for all kinds of reasons and cause all sorts of feelings, and all of them are valid.

We are honored to share these stories and encourage people to continue to talk about abortions in support of others. 

You can share you story here.
