“Our reproductive health, including abortion care, is sacred. Our ancestors knew what plants and other resources around us were safe for abortion, lactation, fertility, anxiety, arthritis, or any other ailment or health condition we faced. We have always known best how and when to start a family, space our children, how to raise them, and talk to them.
Yes, our children in this realm are sacred. They are sacred because they are the entities into which we pour our time and love because we want to, not because we are forced to. No one should be forced to stay pregnant if they don’t want to. I am here because of abortion—someone down the line of ancestors knew when it was and wasn’t time for expanding their family. My own children are here because of abortion.
Just as my children and yours are sacred, so is our decision to have an abortion.”
