Quote of the Day

"I started to realize this was a calling, which is weird because most people wouldn't be like: You know what I want to do when I grow up? Be an abortionist." — Anna, quoted in a must-read piece by Lizzie Presser at the Guardian, "Inside the Secret Network Providing Home Abortions Across the U.S."

Most people wouldn't. More people should. And I imagine if more people heard directly from women who'd had abortions what it meant to them to be able to access them, more people would.

Anna is amazing. And so are the women who trained her. They provide a critical healthcare service that allows other women to define their own lives so that they can be amazing, too.
