If you had an abortion (or just support the right to), we want to hear your stories, whether you braved the dangers of illegal abortion pre-Roe v. Wade or took some mifepristone this morning.

Is there a middle ground in the debate over abortion? I say there is -- and I'm proof of it.

A woman has been sentenced to eight years in prison for having self-administered an abortion within a week of her due date. Was she wrong to do it? Plus, the secret origin story behind my hard-line pro-choice stance.

ableism
I’m a disabled person, and I actually wholly support prenatal screening and full access to prenatal care, because I think it can result in healthier pregnancies and better outcomes for both pregnant people and infants.
birth control
“F*ck ovaries,” I was prepared to say, “and their stupid little eggs too. Let’s do this thing! Sterilisation now, ovulation never!”
birth control
You definitely don’t need women testifying at a panel on whether birth control should be included in women’s health plans. After all, government is for men!

Wondering how you can help the women of Texas who are making a stand for their reproductive rights? Here's how.
pro-choice
Earlier this year, Choice USA launched a "Bro-Choice" campaign to encourage men to speak out against reproductive injustice. Cut to hoards of conservative bloggers lambasting an imaginary douche collective of "horny young men who think 'women's right to choose' translates to 'men's right to use.'"

The overwhelming scientific evidence does not support claims that abortion causes breast cancer, and members of the anti-choice movement are extremely reluctant to hear or admit this.

There's another Kermit Gosnell out there racking up medical complaints right now, and no one is making a move to stop him.
abortion
As it stands now, over half of California counties do not have accessible abortion providers, and people may need to travel four hours or more to access care.

I feel like a whole bunch of readers are about to start hating me, but what can you do. Oh, and also, this post is mad somber. Read on.
abortion
I received a lifesaving abortion from a team of highly professional, skilled, and compassionate health care providers. Everyone, everywhere, should have access to the level of care I had at all times and in all situations, no questions asked.
