Because in order to appreciate the magnitude of this problem, you need to hear the stories of those dealing with the resulting trauma.
I’d always been pro-choice, but I’d also always said I’d never get an abortion myself. Still, once I was actually pregnant, I was pretty sure from the beginning what I would do. And I felt better knowing that I could take a couple of pills and stop being pregnant that way, because I believed I wasn’t very far along. A friend who’d had an abortion two years earlier told me there’d be a sonogram, but it was just procedure and I’d barely even know it was happening. Looking back, that’s the only reason I stayed, because if I had known what a Planned Parenthood looked like I wouldn’t have stayed in the place where I ended up.
