Abortion seems to be the only medical procedure that people want to deny you based on how you got in that situation.
Drove drunk, got in an accident and need an organ transplant? No problem.
Messing around with a gun, accidentally shoot yourself in the leg and need surgery? Of course.
Smoke tobacco for most of your life and need treatment for lung cancer? Yep.
Climb a tree, fall out and break your leg? We’ll fix that right up.
Have sex and get pregnant when you don’t want to be? YOU GOT YOURSELF INTO THIS SITUATION AND YOU DESERVE NO MEDICAL HELP OR COMPASSION! THIS IS YOUR FAULT AND YOU WILL DEAL WITH THE CONSEQUENCES!
don’t wear clothing that reveals your body. don’t walk alone at night. don’t dance at clubs. don’t drink alcohol. don’t go anywhere without telling someone where you went and when you’ll be back.
but don’t be afraid to meet new people. don’t suggest that you are afraid a new person that you meet might harm you. don’t suggest that men don’t respect women. don’t suggest that it is dangerous to be a woman.
live in a constant state of fear, but don’t name the cause of that fear.
all women are potential targets all the time, but how dare you suggest that all men are potential offenders. interesting how that works.
I’m always looking for ways to make this blog a better resource. When presented with options, reviews of abortion clinics and staff could help others decide where to go for the best care. If I get enough submissions, I’d like to create a new page on AAB for them.
If you’ve had an abortion and would like to share your feedback on the experience at the clinic, please submit it through the Ask or Submit functions, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s perfectly understandable and normal for you to feel this way, even when you are certain of your actions.
We here at PCG are certainly here for you. There are also a good amount of pro-choice communities here on Tumblr.
There’s For The Catholic Girls, a community primarily for Catholic people who’ve had abortions, but I’m sure the moderator would talk to you even if you’re not Catholic :). Blog description:
A pro-choice community for Catholic women who have had abortions. Speak out, share your story, or show your support.
There’s We are the 1 in 3 a community for people who’ve had abortions. Blog description:
in 3 women will have an abortion in their lifetime. Women make up 52% of the U.S. population. Yet the right to get an abortion has been under constant attack since Roe v. Wade in 1973 legalized abortion. There has been restriction after restriction limiting access to abortion and contraception in the states’ attempt to control women’s bodies and reproduction.
We believe that women should have equal access to healthcare, free from harassment and social stigma. A free choice can only be made when there are no economic, political, or social constraints. This is why we are committed to ending the stigma around abortion by creating a space for women and those close to women who have had abortions to share their stories.
The Radical Alliance for Gender Equality is a grassroots, direct action organization in Denton, TX.
There’s 40 Days For Choice, a response to 40 Days for Life.
An online campaign offering positive ways for pro-choice supporters to counter anti-abortion activity and clinic protests taking place during the40 Days for Life Lent campaign.

There’s Abortion Assistance, a place for people to ask for and offer rides, funds, a place to stay, someone to talk to, in all areas.
A collection of abortion funds, individuals willing to provide transportation and/or lodging before and after your appointment, and other resources.
This blog is intended to be a resource for people of all genders, races, sexualities, and abilities. If you are offering help, but not willing to help someone based on one of those categories, please say so. Everyone deserves to be safe and supported.
There’s also my personal blog MarPoTish. And I’m sure all the other moderators would welcome a talk with you. There are more abortion and pro choice blogs out there, you can ask the blogs I gave you for more, they’ll definitely know some good ones.
I wish you all the best.
