Share your story.

Storytelling is a powerful way to decrease stigma and center lived experiences in the movement for reproductive freedom. At Planned Parenthood, we're fighting to improve access to sexual and reproductive health care - and we're celebrating and uplifting stories about why we fight for that care.

Krystal's Story

"I was a teenager when I first sought health services from Planned Parenthood. I didn't feel comfortable going to my pediatrician, or safe to ask my parents for assistance. At the time I wasn't even sure what my birth control options were, and since it was 1994, I went to the yellow pages. Planned Parenthood was the only name I recognized; I knew that they could help me."

Watch: "Ours to Tell"

Jamie's Story

"I am so grateful that I can continue to build the relationships, the career, the financial security, and the emotional maturity that I can pass on to my future children, when the time is right.

I am so grateful I had the choice to make the decision. I am so grateful I had the access to the services I needed to carry out the decision."

At Planned Parenthood, we're fighting to protect sexual and reproductive health care, including safe, legal abortion.

Sharing your story, whether it's about abortion, other reproductive health care, advocating for our rights and freedoms, or anything else, can make a difference. Personal stories show lawmakers, the media, and other supporters what we're fighting for - and why we'll never back down.

You have a story to tell.

Jenna C.'s story

"16 years later, I have no shame. I have no regrets. I don't like with guilt, like many claim is inevitable for women who have abortions; I lie with gratitude and compassion.

I stand with Planned Parenthood. I stand with women and men of all races, nationalities, immigration statuses, and sexualities. I stand on the right side of history, and for the future, I fight."
