In the wake of Georgia and Alabama's newly-signed abortion laws, people with uteruses are sharing how they've personally benefited from the procedure in hopes of removing its social stigma.
Which begs the question for our cisgender men readers: how have YOU personally benefited from an abortion?
Maybe you weren't ready to be a parent at a young age...
...or maybe you just weren't ready to be a parent, period.
Perhaps you "didn't have room" to expand your family...
...Or you had to consider other factors, like birth defects, death, and your emotional wellbeing.
It's also possible that the timing and situation just weren't right.
As you can see, people with uteruses aren't the only ones who've benefitted from abortions, whether it be an emotional benefit, an economical benefit, an educational or professional benefit, or all of the above.
So, if you would like to share how and why an abortion has personally benefitted you, as a person without a uterus, please tell us your story in the comment box below. Feel free to include as little or as much detail as you'd like.
This post has been updated to acknowledge that trans men, non-binary people, genderqueer, and other gender-plural people also undergo abortions.
