I felt self conscious in my outfit and of looking too visible. And then my partner and I reached the Planned Parenthood lineup of pink and my fears melted away. The group was so full of love and excitement, I couldn’t help but feel swept up by it.
Today I am holding the abortions stories of all of the women I have met (and those I haven't) with tenderness and compassion.
It started with a seemingly simple desire to make emergency contraception more readily available to college students in Maine.
While the importance of Title X was always clear to me, I had never seen - up close and in person - the fear of not receiving basic and necessary healthcare until I came to Planned Parenthood to work directly with patients.
Politics aside, don’t we all agree that every patient should have access to the best medical care possible? Does this not include providing them with all of the information necessary to make decisions about their own bodies?
When I asked if they believed that they will see aborto legal in their lifetimes - most said no, not likely, but they still wanted the government to know they would fight for it.
RCV is a new system with a new ballot---so we did a test run here in the office.
.As our fearless leader, Cecile Richards, steps down from her presidency today after twelve years of service, we’d like to salute her for her warmth, her tenacity, and her seemingly endless reserves of strength and grace under fire.
