Tonight, thanks to the Reproductive Health Access Project and papayas, I learned all about the options for first trimester abortions and even performed an aspiration abortion on a papaya! My motivation for going to the seminar was 1.) I staunchly fight for reproductive justice and access in my activist work and yet I was a little shaky about the medicine behind it and 2.) I am really scared about reproductive health access and how every day, anti-reproductive-health assholes chip away at the constitutional right for me and all those with uteri to control our bodily autonomy and heath. I wanted to at least be theoretically familiar with how a first trimester abortion works. I think I am going to go to more seminars in the future just to be safe. I have read the Handmaid’s Tale too many times and to be honest, I’m terrified.
This girl is cool.
