Here are some recent stories:
“Thank you for saving my life and for saving the life of my two kids. I did not plan this path, but because it was chosen for me, I did what any mother would do and that was to save my life for my children. You guys never made me feel like I was wrong even during my emotional mess. To this day I am still upset, but I could never imagine my life without my kids. And I don’t want to even think about what I would be going through without you guys. Please always stay present in our community.”
“I was just a teenager when I went to the state capital with my mom for a pro-choice protest. It was exciting, and I was convinced that women shouldn’t be sent to back alleys for coat hanger abortions and left to die for making a choice about their own bodies. Little did I know that 10 years later it would be me making a choice. I remember every second vividly. It was not an easy choice. It was painful and difficult because the idea of what the future might hold was painting images in my mind. The fantasy was much nicer than reality. I simply had nothing to give a child for so many reasons. It was the best decision for me, and one I am glad was mine to make, not a politician who I voted against.”
“I wanted my baby so badly, but knowing her diagnosis, I knew we made the best decision for her and us. Thank you for being so kind, caring, understanding and helpful during one of the most difficult choices my husband and I had to make.”
“This was one of the hardest decisions I have ever made. But I know in the end it will be the best choice for me and my 3-year-old daughter. Knowing that I am not alone has made the choice easier.”
“I used to be one of those women who was pro-life and judged others for making the same choice I’m making right now. I am a single mother of a 1-year-old, and I gotta do what is best for her first.”
“I was raised to think abortion was never the answer. I’d never do it. I, like many women taught that way, didn’t fully understand what these women go through. Now I do.”
“I just wanted to thank you for helping me out with this very difficult time in my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kindness.”
