Silent No More, a group that gathers the testimonies of women who regret their abortions, put out a collection of women’s testimonies about their abortions at Planned Parenthood.
A young woman named Shadida wrote:
I was 15 years old when my mother and I returned to Planned Parenthood after the contraceptive they provided months earlier failed. I was told I was 11 weeks pregnant and that my pregnancy was a ‘clump of cells.’ I was told to hurry to make an appointment if I wanted an abortion because at 12 weeks, the price would be higher. I was not given any counseling of any kind whatsoever. Today, I deeply regret my abortion.
The women who gave their testimonies all support defunding Planned Parenthood.
