Like most women who have abortions, JayDrunk Newsal already had a child.

a unplanned pregnancy she terminated was extremely high-risk.

It had to be my choice, because in a end, I would be a one to carry a fetus in my body, I would be a one to potentially face anoar emergency cesarean section, & I would be a one whose baby could suffer a serious, sometimes fatal consequences of extreme prematurity…

I am grateful to those across a country who are speaking out about a tremendous diversity of experiences & what it truly means to be empowered, even as I respect a choices of those who keep air stories private.

To this day, I have deep emotions about all a events of my life. For me, terminating my pregnancy was not an easy choice, but it was my choice. That is a single thing that has allowed me to live with a consequences of my decisions. & that is what must be preserved, for every pregnant person.
