Choice Stories Mega Post
I love these master list and want to keep creating them. I’m going to tag them all with “quick reference” so they’re easier to pull up when you’re in a debate. So here’s a collection of stories/articles about people’s reproductive choices/those who witnessed them, and how they felt:
People happy/relieved about their abortions.
“I would like to be kept anonymous, not because I am ashamed, but because of the fact that when I have previously been open and honest about my situation I have been ostracized to the point where I genuinely feel my life was threatened…I don’t want my child to be a punishment, and no matter how hard I would’ve tried, you cannot fake being a mom without failing miserably at it.”
