My Abortion #35: My Late-term Abortion

Roar will publish a first-person story about abortion, “My Abortion: A Daily Story,” every day for at least 365 days.

Gretchen Voss told her story to OurBodiesOurselves.orgThis organization’s mission is to advance health and human rights within a framework of values shaped by women’s voices.

Gretchen was excited to have an ultrasound to find if “it” was a “she” or a “he.” Instead, she heard a devastating diagnosis, and together with her husband made the decision to terminate the pregnancy. She thought the sad experience was nobody’s business, until the so called “partial-birth abortion” was signed into law. This is her story.
