i love Brene Brown!

This is everything.

For the record, I am someone who has had an abortion and I didn’t realize the shame I held onto until I started speaking publicly about it. It all happened quickly… I testified before my state legislature and then ended up on TV, radio, in the newspaper and online places all within a week. But there was NO SHAME. From strangers, family, friends or anyone. I felt so free and powerful.

NO SHAME NO SHAME JUST LOVE.

That is so amazing to hear! <3

I was taught that the only 100% way to avoid pregnancy is to be abstinent. Sex my friend, is a choice. 

If a woman doesn’t want to be pregnant. Then by golly, she can choose not to get pregnant. Or she can wait nine months as oppose to killing a human being. 

Hello friend! My name’s Kendra, and I’m going to tell you a thing:

Did you know that married couples like to have sex? Did you know that not all married couples want children? Does that mean they have to abstain from sex?

(Hint: the answer is no!)

No one should be forced to carry a pregnancy they don’t want or that is harmful to their health.

If you think pregnancy is just “waiting nine months,” then you might want to speak to someone who has been pregnant. I can assure you that pregnancy is much, much more than simply “waiting.”

I hope this clears some things up for you! If you have any questions, feel free to visit my Ask and I’d be happy to answer them!

Married woman, healthy sex life with my husband, NEVER want to be a mother. At least not of my own body. We take precautions every time. We’re extremely careful. But we had a scare about a month ago. And we talked about it. We don’t want children, and I’ve been told a pregnancy would be extremely dangerous, painful and expensive for me. We know what we would have done. This is my right. To choose to not be a mother, but to still enjoy sex with my husband.

And before you point at me and scream about birth control and condoms: We use them. But they aren’t foolproof. And in the event of their failure, I refuse to suffer. He’s even considering a vasectomy to avoid the possibility. But until we can afford it, I’ll keep my options open.

And all women deserve that right. No matter the circumstance.

Thank you so much for sharing this!

Hey I'm a 17 year old girl, also a Christian, and I'm trying to define my opinion on abortion. I really respect your ideas too! I just want some help forming a solid belief on this. I think that after a point in pregnancy, there's a human that exists, and before that, like very early in the first trimester it's a group of cells? I think rape is a circumstance in which abortion should be available but idk about "accidental" pregnancy? Like that's kinda their fault right? Adoption is available...

Hey there! I’m really glad you’re trying to figure this stuff out and ask questions - that shows that you want to learn and that you’re willing to do some research in order to do that. So, yay you!

I’m going to explain this as best I can, and if you’re still confused or if you have any additional questions, go ahead and send ‘em my way. I’m happy to help you out!

Most people who are pro-choice recognize that a fetus (unborn child) is a human. (I personally like to joke that pregnant people aren’t carrying a basking shark in their uterus!)

(^That’s a basking shark, for anyone who is curious. Pretty badass, right?)

Anyways, back to what I was saying - if you want to call it a group of cells, go for it. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t human at the same time! (And if we want to get technical, we’re all a group of cells).

Now, I’m going to ask you a couple of questions - you don’t have to answer if you don’t want to, but I do want you to think about them, okay? Why the rape exception? What’s the difference between the two fetuses? 

People shouldn’t have to be pregnant if they don’t want to be. I know adoption is a choice - and it’s a good one - but it’s only good if it’s the right choice for the pregnant person. Adoption works great if the pregnant person doesn’t want to be a parent, but it doesn’t help so much if they don’t want to be pregnant. Does that make sense?

There are also times where the pregnant person has to have an abortion because of health reasons or fetal anomalies. These are very sad and very difficult decisions for those people to make. Often, these are wanted pregnancies where something has gone wrong. Abortion needs to be available for those who need it.

I hope this helps, Anon. If I can answer anything else, please let me know!
