My Abortion, My Life: The Podcast

Having an abortion can mean the chance to graduate, to leave an abusive relationship, to raise your children with dignity. It can be a sad option in a series of disappointing events, an unwanted end to a wanted pregnancy, and an outcome fraught with emotion. In the stories on this podcast, we will hear sadness and confusion as well as resilience and determination. Just as every person’s life is unique and nuanced—so is every abortion story. 

We’ve created this podcast to give you the chance to hear from the people at the center of the abortion debate—those whose voices are often silenced by shame and stigma: the people who’ve had abortions and the people who love and support them.  If you’re ready to help change the conversation, then My Abortion, My Life: The Podcast can help you get started.

Each episode, we’ll feature abortion stories submitted directly to this website. Episodes will feature guests who will read and reflect on the stories. They’ll give voice to often anonymous authors, and they’ll share how reading someone’s abortion story impacts them personally.

We hope you tune in to our monthly episodes for new stories and new perspectives on abortion. If you’re as inspired as we are to fight back against the shame and stigma around abortion, there are a few things you can do!
