A few days ago, a guest commentary was featured reflecting upon the true implications of Roe v. Wade and the current state of reproductive rights for women. The article echoed my own concerns within the abortion debate: We need to see past the political arena. All the scathing debate surrounding the issue, from both sides, prevents the women who have actually gone through the procedure to seek the support they might need. A safe space to simply discuss the experience did not exist until today.
The Women’s Center is offering a revolutionary new support group specifically geared toward women who have already had an abortion. This is not a place for political or religious debate, nor is it a place for women who simply have questions about the procedure. If you have had an abortion and are looking for a safe, confidential space to discuss the experience, please contact the Women’s Center at 756-2600 for more information.
