I hadn’t told anyone about my abortion, I have felt so much shame and was so afraid of judgement. I called Hope Rising and agreed to meet with one of their women. I had such anxiety about meeting this woman because surely she would want to hear my abortion story and up to now I have never spoken about it to anyone. We met at a local coffee shop and to my relief she didn’t ask me to share my story instead she told me her abortion story. The more she spoke the more I could relate. She had experienced all the same things. I knew my story was safe with her. Love the women at Hope Rising.
