Community Post 🗣 Tell Us About Your Abortion

by Jun 24, 2022Reader Replies

In most of the world, abortion access is getting easier and safer. It is a basic healthcare need for millions of women, girls and others who can become pregnant. On June 24th, 2022, a United States Supreme Court decision effectively overturned Roe v Wade, a 1973 case that established the constitutional right to an abortion.

I find during overwhelming events, when I feel like I’ve lost my power or my voice (or I’m filled with rage or sadness), connecting to other people one-on-one and sharing stories helps me to find my way again.
