A Message to Women Seeking Abortion

from the staff at the clinic

May you know that your body is yours.
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 female experience.
How you feel about this experience, however,
is entirely 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 abortion.
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 freedom.

We hope you will consider yourself "pro-choice"
and work to keep abortion safe, legal and accessible
for your sisters in the future.

If 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?
