My Abortion, My Life is a public awareness campaign that challenges the silence and stigma around abortion.

My Abortion, My Life is changing the conversation about abortion by creating safe spaces for nuanced and respectful conversation about abortion experiences—and providing resources and tools to help get those conversations started. From public advertising that sparks a conversation on the bus, to intimate house parties where stories are shared and perspectives are shifted… we are engaging the community in a completely different kind of dialogue than we hear on the nightly news. It's about opening space in our relationships so that others can share. It's about listening and really hearing. It’s about helping all of us who have been silenced by stigma to find our voice, to speak about our own experiences, and to develop support for and trust in others. If you’re ready to help change the conversation, then My Abortion, My Life can help you get started.
