Nikia’s Abortion Story

I’m excited to share my abortion story because I want to combat abortion stigma.

It is important for me to share my story as part of the resistance to the constant attack on people of color having abortions. As a freedom fighter, working to end all oppression, I am exercising my right to self-determination. I get to create the life that I want for myself. My hope is that by sharing my story, other people having abortions know that they’re not alone.

I want people who read my story to know that people who have abortions are making the best decision for our lives and we deserve to have the lives that we want for ourselves.
