People Who Switched From Anti-Abortion To Pro-Choice, Tell Us Your Story

Tell us your story.

Earlier this month, the Supreme Court failed to take action against Texas's horrific new abortion law. Texans are no longer able to get abortions after they're 6 weeks along, which is before many even know they're pregnant.

The law also allows the general public to sue anyone involved in an abortion, from the provider to someone who drove the pregnant person to the clinic.

So I want to know: Anyone who was previously pro-life, what made you switch to pro-choice?

Maybe you were raised in a super-religious household, and once you got to college, you realized the importance of a woman's right to choose.

Perhaps you were against the idea of abortion until you became pregnant at a young age with little money, and you were suddenly grateful for the ability to decide if/when you want to become a mother.

Or maybe you realized that forcing women to have unwanted children punishes them without equally punishing the men who got them pregnant in the first place.
