One of the many prices women pay for the stigma attached to abortion is that they don’t realize they have a right to medical skill, kindness and a clean attractive abortion facility, just as they do with any other health care.

If they are keeping secrets, they may not tell even other women about bad experiences—or good experiences. So each woman who is thinking about abortion is on her own. And they may not report substandard care to health authorities because they don’t want to jeopardize their own confidentiality. Or they may not even realize that they deserve better.

Charlotte Taft, director of the Abortion Care Network (via socialismartnature)

Help each other stay away from less than awesome clinics, don’t feel ashamed, your voice matters, your experience is important.

“I was raped at 14. I was told it was my fault. I was drinking, wearing a skirt. I was shamed for aborting the pregnancy that resulted. I was told, “it’s not the baby’s fault.” NEWSFLASH: it was not my fault either, and no person should have to go through a pregnancy, be it a result of rape or not, if they don’t want to.”
10 years later, my rapist is still out there. No one ever bothered to ask me how I was doing, how I was coping with being raped. My life was turned upside down. No one cared.All anyone ever cared about was my aborted fetus.
I am the 1 in 3.

Had an abortion at age 20. I was in college, poor, and found myself not wanting children.  Abortion should not be stigmatized and should be considered a normal health-care procedure. My body, my choice, the right decision for my life!

I had an abortion when I was 22 years old. It was the best decision I could have made for myself. And some people want to call me a criminal. A criminal for wanting the right to control my own body and life. Who is the real criminal? Me or those who would deny me this right? We demand: free abortion on demand, no apologies! Abortion is healthcare and all people should have access to healthcare.  The liberation of women is bound up in our ability to control our own bodies.I AM THE 1 IN 3

I got pregnant at 15, I was on a ton of medications at the time, suffering from severe depression, anxiety and schizophrenia. It would have been born dead or have severe birth defects. I chose to abort because I knew there was no way I could handle being pregnant for 9 months and then give birth to something I neither wanted nor needed. Doctors told me I had chances of dying if I gave birth. I had a woman in the waiting room who was also getting an abortion scoff at me, I’ve had parents friends tell me I had no right taking my parents grandchild away from them. My parents never said a bad thing about it to me. I’m 19 now, it’s been 4 years and there is never a single moment where I regret my decision. It would have ruined my life, I could be dead. I’m more important than a fetus, my body is not here for other people to dictate and my womb is not a breeding ground for others desires, and neither is anyone elses!I am 1 in 3 and damn proud!

I found out I was pregnant 3 days after I’d lost my job. I was 19, newly married & already thousands of dollars in debt. No woman should have to choose between poverty or social stigma & shame. I am proud to be 1 in 3!
