We champion the global human right to abortions & reproductive justice. Our mission is to create a compassionate world for people who have abortions. We are volunteers working to expand the circle of compassion beyond those who have ‘an abortion,’ to embrace people enduring the most extreme stigma for ending more than one pregnancy. We create community as we share our stories, encourage each other, and challenge the emotional violence of the stigma of abortions.
We are building a multi-media collection of true stories of abortions. Some come from people who have written to us. Others we find in the public sphere. All together they convey the need for access to safe, shame-free abortions around the world. Our stories confirm that people who have abortions — no matter the number — are all human beings doing their best to manage the complexities of their lives and reproductive experiences.
We are creating a global archive of kindness. We ask people from around the world to send in supportive messages for people who have had abortions.
Researchers and health officials across the globe are hard at work to end the stigma of abortions and improve access to reproductive care. We share their findings.
