Abortionist: people who have abortions are brave

By Sarah Terzo

Abortionist Meera Shah writes:

“[W]e can say that someone is brave to choose themselves when often societal and familial actors actively try to take away their reproductive autonomy. When someone chooses the healthcare they need despite the backlash they may face, yes, that’s brave.”

Meera Shah, You’re the Only One I’ve Told: The Stories Behind Abortion (Chicago, Illinois: Chicago Review Press Incorporated, 2020) p.7.

By “chooses the healthcare they need” Shah means “aborting a baby.” Abortion is killing, not healthcare. And aborting a child isn’t an act of bravery.

What is brave is to fight for your child and carry him or her to term despite difficult circumstances. That is true bravery.
