A Message to Women Seeking Abortion
the staff at the clinic
May you know that your body is
May you know that your judgment is sound.
May you know that your
life is your life.
We honor you.
You may be feeling isolated,
You may be feeling anxious, scared, or angry,
You may be feeling a lack of
power over your life.
May you know that you are not alone.
May you draw
strength from knowing your choices are respected.
Millions of women,
throughout the ages, have had abortions.
Which makes abortion nearly a universal
How you feel about this experience, however,
personal and unique. It is your experience.
Our hope is that you can
use your feelings and emotions to connect
with other women who have experienced
We hope you will talk about it with your friends and family,
Because when we end the silence around abortion,
women become empowered.
Our wish for YOU, and for all women,
is total sexual and reproductive
We hope you will consider yourself "pro-choice"
and work to keep abortion safe, legal and accessible
for your sisters in
I am not for myself, then who will be for me? And if I am only for myself, then
what am I? And if not now, when?
