Throughout history, people have shared their stories to understand the unknown. We believe it is impossible to hate someone once you know their story.
Reclaim Needs YOUR Story
Everything about abortion is stigmatized. As a profession, as a decision, as a procedure. Reclaim educates politicians and communities about the realities of abortion access and care in Southeast Michigan and nationwide. As policies continue to restrict abortion care, advocates must continue to find creative avenues that change the conversation on abortion.
Reclaim received Seed Support grant from Abortion Conversation Project to host their Summer Story Session Event to reduce abortion stigma! Actors and the women who've had abortions will take to our stage and read abortion stories! Share your story below!
1 in 3 pregnant people will have an abortion in their lifetime, but where are their stories? Why is abortion so taboo when so many seek these services at some point in their life? Where are the stories of the loved ones who stood by their sides?
This is where Reclaim needs your help! In order to stop the hate and bust stigma around abortion, we need your stories. If you or someone you know had an abortion, we want to hear about it!
What was your experience with abortion like, and what do you think it should be like for women in the future?
Your story does not have to be long, it doesn’t have to be emotional (although it certainly can be either of those things) and can be as simple as, “I had an abortion, and it was the best decision for me.”
