Blog: The importance of sharing abortion stories

Abortion  •  23 April 2022  • 3 min read



Sharing stories is at the heart of ending the stigma that too many women and pregnant people still feel when it comes to abortion. Read some of the stories patients share on our website.

“I decided to write this detailed account to give something back to MSI Reproductive Choices for an amazing support I received from them and also for all the other women who might be scared and stressed in this moment.”

Lily is 41 and in August 2020 she contacted our advice line to access our new “At home abortion pills” service, abortion telemedicine. 

In the story she shared on our website through our dedicated “Share your story” form, she recalls immediately starting to search the internet for the options of early abortion as well as for stories from other women who had gone through the same process. 

You can read her abortion pills story at this link.

Abortion stories from our patients 

In some of the stories our patients shared they explain in details what it feels to through a medical abortion with pills or a surgical abortion, while in some other cases patients describe the whole process in details, from booking to the aftercare and counselling support available. 

In all cases, we know that reading stories from clients who have received treatment from a provider will make it easier to know what to expect and that you are not alone.

1 in 3 women in the UK will have one or more abortion in their lifetime. Everyone’s story is different. Help us #SmashAbortionStigma by sharing yours.
