I am 30, unmarried, and from a Muslim family. If I told them I just had an abortion, they would have a collective heart attack. But not before calling me every word for “whore” in three different languages, bless their judgmental, multilingual hearts.
I’d like to share my story with those who find themselves in the same boat as myself. Or in a similar boat, not too far away from mine. Or on the shore but within eyesight of my boat. Or drowning in the water but wanting to climb up onto my boat.
Incidentally, I know nothing about boats. But I know a lot more about abortion now than I ever thought I would. Yippee.
