Woman who had abortion: I am the most important person

From one woman who had an abortion:

“I feel proud of myself that I made the choice to have an abortion and finish college. I never made a decision before that said I was the most important person. Choosing abortion is about empowerment. It’s about making a choice in favor of myself and my own future. It was giving myself a vote of confidence.”
