Abortion—and the people who have them—have been called a lot of things. But what is abortion actually? An act of love. An act of compassion. An act of healing. Abortion actually is something 1 in 4 people will experience in their lifetimes. It’s health care. It’s freedom. Abortion actually can be emotional—or not. It’s a personal decision. A family decision. A you-know-your-body-and-your-life-the-best decision. If you’ve had an abortion, you’re the only one who can speak to what your abortion actually felt like to you—and that’s how it should be. It’s time to reframe the conversation on what abortion actually is about.
