I had an abortion when I was 18 years old. I’m not sure if I’ve ever talked about it on here but I’m not ashamed so I’m sharing today because if #youknowme then you know someone who has had an abortion.
I had an abortion. It was the right decision for me, and it wasn't a hard one. My husband and I were working more than full time and had three kids already. I was fortunate that, at the time, accessing abortion in TX was not the nightmare it is now. #YouKnowMe
Let me point out that Alabama and Missouri have passed these bills stating it is to preserve ALL life. Yet, both states still have and use the death penalty. Alabama has an execution scheduled for today. It's not about life. It's about control and religion. #YouKnowMe
In 2012, I had an abortion. It was one of the hardest decisions I've ever had to make. I still think about it to this day. But these truths do not make me regret my decision. It was the right choice for me, at that time in my life. I have not a single doubt about this. #YouKnowMe
I had just turned 24. I was trying to stay sober, living on $200 a week and was so incapable of taking care of myself that I hadn't seen a dentist in 6 years. It was a deeply sad experience AND a decision I never once regretted. 1 in 4. #youknowme
#youknowme Where are are the MEN? Many make this choice with their partners. Many men pay for abortions, some force women to get them, and some men make thoughtful decisions about family planning. Why is this a “women’s” issue? Be courageous, MEN, and tell your stories too!
#YouKnowMe is problematic because much of the United States is still socially segregated.
The truth is you don’t know the disabled, the poor, the black, the nonbinary, the queer, the immigrant.
The fact is you don’t know me, or need to, to respect my autonomy & choices.
I've told my story before. I was 29 and my husband and I made the decision together. We both came from terrible abusive families. The kindest thing we could do was end it before it began. Our families couldn't harm a child that never existed.
#youknowme. Finding out I was pregnant 13 years ago was the most horrifying, surreal experience of my life. I was with a serious boyfriend at the time. I was on birth control. I WAS ON BIRTH CONTROL. I was furious, confused, and devastated to find out it had failed.
Bravery breeds bravery. Keep it going and don’t stop. I certainly won’t.

#YouKnowMe. I had an abortion.
It was the best choice for my health & my family. While it was an immensely hard decision, I don't regret it.
Thank you, @BusyPhilipps
for starting this hashtag & for all women who are sharing. I'm one of you & I'm w/ you.
I haven’t ever been in a position to need an abortion (thank god) but I have had men remove the condom/ejaculate inside me without my consent. Not everyone is so lucky, so if you’re iffy on abortion rights... go scroll through the #youknowme hashtag. Listen to the people affected
More than 100 years ago, my great-grandmother bled to death after an illegal, back alley abortion. It changed our family forever. I will do whatever I can to prevent that from happening to another family. #YouKnowMe
Really moved reading the testimonies on #youknowme & sending solidarity to our US sisters.
If you'd like to take action closer to home, we're fighting the extreme #abortion ban that remains in force, just across the water, in Northern Ireland. #NowForNI 👉https://t.co/BUKlebp3kU
Actress Busy Philipps took to social media to encourage women to speak out about their abortions using the hashtag #youknowme https://t.co/K8uTCJlEZW

#YouKnowMe es la campaña que lanzan en EEUU para defender el derecho al aborto. Y sí, todos amamos a alguien que ha tenido un aborto. https://t.co/W5Ul54KP7e
La règle est pourtant simple : si tu n'as pas d'utérus, tu ne décides pas pour ceux qui en ont un #youknowme
#YouKnowMe My Mom went to college in the 1940s with a girl who died from a botched abortion. They tried to tell the girls in her dorm that she'd popped a pimple and an infection had gone to her brain! Everyone knew what had happened. As a result Mom raised me to be #ProChoice.
#youknowus #youknowme is powerful, but women should never have to retell their trauma just to be heard by others. you are not a murderer, and are entitled to making a choice for your own body.
My second pregnancy was planned. What wasn't, was finding out I have leukemia. My #abortion was the best health care decision for me. As an abortion provider, I am honored to support the 1 in 4 who seek abortion care. #YouKnowMe #abortionprovider #patientautonomy
I wrote this story about my pregnancy & abortion. @Yahoo
Shine published it “by anonymous.” After reading confessional tweets by @ZerlinaMaxwell
& many others, I thought it was important to own it: https://t.co/1xKy801V8M

We all have our stories & our reasons. I wont share mine, but its our body. Our choice. #YouKnowMe
Today, I am taking a break from twitter to be present with my kid at a field trip. Because some people who have abortions also have kids. Sometimes before. Sometimes after. We are not separate people, just the same person at different times in our lives. #YouKnowMe.

#youknowme Thanks for all of the support! But keep in mind I’m one of the lucky ones! I had endless support and I had love from not only my partner but my family & friends.. my insurance even covered it! Even so, it took a toll on my mental health. Three years later I still get
These are the men who banned abortions. The law which has NO EXCEPTIONS for unwanted pregnancies that are a result of rape. #YouKnowMe
So my sweet mama lives with us. I’ve cared for her since her massive stroke. She read my thread. She’s hella rad. Respects pronouns, loves people, hates 45. But, I still held my breath while she read. She cried. We cried. And she wants me to send love to each of you #YouKnowMe
I am the 1 in 4.
And I rarely talk about it. My partner & I, after 2 children, made the right decision. I had access to a clinic 100km away. It was never an easy decision. It is still a secret from some people I love.
