Compassionate Strangers Made My Abortion Happen

When I realized I needed an abortion, I didn’t realize that it would be a destination abortion. I didn’t realize how many barriers—how many people—would be in my way just so I could get the abortion I wanted, when I wanted it. But thankfully, with the help of complete strangers, I was able to get the abortion I wanted at 30 weeks.

I wonder what our society could look like if we all held a bit more empathy and grace for people like me, who have later abortions and no one to support us.
