For decades, Dr. George Tiller dedicated his life to providing care to women in need of late-term abortions. Because of misinformation about the number and reasons for late-term abortions, and because of the stigma surrounding abortion created by radical right-wing hate groups, the stories of women seeking out such procedures are rarely heard.
RH Reality Check has opened this forum to allow women (or their partners) who have undergone late-term abortions to tell their stories, whether using their own names, a pseudonym, or anonymously. It is simple: Use the comment boxes below to write about your story and experience. The identities of those writing anonymously are safeguarded by our system. If instead you wish to post in a reader diary, you can easily set up a diary (and remain anonymous as well) by following these simple instructions.
Because this is a forum in which can tell their stories, we will not tolerate and will promptly remove comments harassing, threatening or otherwise denigrating any woman (or her partner) posting their personal story here.
