Hey y’all, let’s talk about ::abortion stigma::
.
Did you know that 1 in 4 females will have an abortion by age 45? Did you know abortion is one of the most common and safe medical procedures performed in the US? Did you know that many people feel guilt and shame for having one? .
For most people, abortion is a quiet secret that lives inside of them. Many feel like they’re the only person they know who’s had one, that they’re rare and that having an abortion should stay a secret. This shame and isolation is a product of ::abortion stigma::. .
There’s no right way to feel after an abortion. In my experience with patients seeking abortion, many have complicated feelings about the *situation* surrounding their need for abortion (family issues, partner issues, financial issues, intimate partner violence, etc.), further complicated by the societal stigma about the procedure itself. ::it’s complicated::.
.
In my nearly 10 years of abortion care, I’ve found that the most common feeling people have after their abortions is relief, though sometimes paired with guilt or shame. Research backs this up too. .
95% of women do not regret their abortion. For many it is a chance at ::freedom::. .
I honor and respect all people’s decisions to manage their pregnancies and reproductive health in a safe and healthy way that works for their life/style. Women are no longer walking wombs. We are warriors, we are leaders, we are fully actualizing humans with the right to peace, love and the pursuit of happiness, regardless of pregnancy status. .
When we keep our stories in the dark, we keep ourselves and each other in the dark. It takes courage to face abortion stigma. But we’re doing it....together 💪🏽.

I support the right for everyone to make decisions about their own body.

You love someone who has had an abortion. Even if you don’t know. Remember not all experiences are visible. (Want to join? Link in my bio.)

Motherhood should always be an option. Regardless of what pro birthers say, NO woman should ever be forced to become a mother if she doesn’t want to. As someone who is pro choice, I will fight against those who are trying to force not consenting women to become mothers.

SYA BOOK SPOTLIGHT: @daniellecampoamor 💜. When we first met Danielle Campoamor, she was living in Seattle with her son and partner and beginning her career as a freelance writer, with a focus on reproductive health, often through the lens of her own experiences. Shortly after SYA exploded, Danielle started threw herself into abortion advocacy and moved to NYC to expand her career and family in the city of her dreams. She is now a Senior Editor at @romperdotcom and creator and author of @bustle ‘s Abortion AMA Column, the first column in the country dedicated entirely to answering questions about abortion. Danielle candidly discusses her own reproductive history, as well as the shame and isolation she experienced before she started writing about her experiences publicly: "I have had five pregnancies, one live birth, three miscarriages, and one abortion...And people like me are everywhere." Danielle's story in the book revolves around internalizing so much stigma following her abortion that she almost didn't survive; it's an intense story, but it's pretty special when you know how it turned out. "When I look at my son, I think about abortion. Because without abortion, my son would not exist." GO DANIELLE GO!!! 💜. Photo by @byelizabethrudge 🧡. Read Danielle’s full story in our new 📖.

“Following the U.S. Congress’s attempts to defund Planned Parenthood, the hashtag #ShoutYourAbortion became a viral conduit for abortion storytelling, receiving extensive media coverage and positioning real human experiences at the center of America’s abortion debate for the very first time. The online momentum sparked a grassroots movement that subsequently inspired countless individuals to share their abortion stories in art, media, and community events all over the country, and to begin building platforms for others to do the same. “

Yay! Just got this awesome package from @shoutyourabortion in the mail! I'm 100% in support of eliminating all stigma with regards to your reproductive decisions -- whether you choose to gestate, adopt, have an abortion, get IVF, or otherwise, you deserve full access and no judgment. Only you have the right to choose your destiny. Abortion is natural, abortion is common, abortion is normal. Period. 🌻
