Whole Woman’s Health of Minnesota is one of 8 abortion clinics serving patients who need trusted abortion care in the North Star State. It also borders numerous states in the Upper Midwest that are poised to ban abortion if Roe v. Wade is overturned this month.
Anxieties are high as we prepare for what’s ahead, but abortion care that is free from stigma and filled with love remains our top priority. That’s why we wanted to share a testimonial from a real patient who recently had an abortion at our Minnesota clinic.
“The moment I found out I was pregnant, I knew abortion was the only option for me,” shares Grace. “I am 20, going to college, living at home, and working a part-time job. Also, a week before I found out I was pregnant, I realized that I had grown out of the relationship I was in. Basically, in no way shape or form was I ready to take care of another life. I decided right away that I needed to get an abortion. Whole Woman’s Health wasn’t my first call, but I’m so glad I ended up here. The staff is beyond amazing, and I had the best experience ever. Every staff member was so kind, tender, helpful, and supportive.”
We know that in a few weeks, patients like Grace could have to travel hundreds or thousands of miles to get the abortion they need. If travelling isn’t an option, they could be forced into parenthood or have to take matters into their own hands.
“If this would have happened to me and I didn’t get to make the call over my own body, my life would be forever changed,” added Grace. “Thank you, Whole Woman’s Health of Minnesota – you changed my life.”
Grace’s experience is not unlike most of the patients we see. The people who walk through our doors often expect cold, compassion-less care, but we flip the script and offer empowerment and respect. Will you stand with us during this critical time so we can continue to provide the best abortion care?
