Community Submissions

Sharing our personal stories can strengthen our bonds with family and friends, help us not feel so alone, and it can generate more social respect for all of our unique abortion experiences.  But, sharing our stories can also come with great personal and professional risks.  Whether you chose to share your story – publicly or privately or not at all – know that you deserve to be heard with dignity and respect.  Your story is powerful and intimate and we’re rooting for you every step of the way. Exhale promotes ‘Ethical Storysharing’ – a practice that puts the owner of the story  -  you, the woman who has had an abortion - in the center of the storytelling process. It ensures that your rights, needs, and leadership are supported and respected throughout the process. Ethical storysharing encourages wellbeing, and facilitates cultural transformation.
