I haven’t been in a position to need to make a choice and I have not needed an abortion. But I have held the hands of at least half a dozen girls,some of these girls (all under 25) were friends. At least one, had previously declared she was my avowed enemy, but had no one else to turn to in her circle of religious extremist and very conservative friends and family. It breaks my heart to think that she couldn’t trust those closest to her to support her and to love her. I have never doubted these women’s intelligence or ability to make this choice and I plan on leaving an open door and an open heart for any woman who needs me to be there for her, even if no one else will.
