Some say I’m weak because I dare to say that abortion hurts me and that I regret it. The truth is, twenty years ago, I was psychologically and emotionally fragile and that’s precisely why I was likely to accept abortion as a valid option. I’ve been pondering lately how abortion is similar to a mental disorder; a form of amputation and the fight for “abortion access” is a sad delusion and not what feminism should be about.
I don’t think women who say they regret their abortions are weak. It’s painful and uneasy to say “I was wrong” in public and yet, we expose ourselves and dare to say it; not only that but we also use that experience to help other women make better choices for themselves.
