Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss

Shaing my story through social media in an open letter (trigger warnings)

Hi ladies,
     I was an active member here a while ago and I've come to share a published version of my story in an anonymous open letter that I have written so that others may share it. It was difficult to write, but I'm glad I have because I believe it has helped others come forward to speak out on this issue. If you feel comfortable, please read and share. Thank you to this board for helping me get through those rough times.

  • I couldn't have said it better myself. Beautifully written. This is not a fun team to be a part of and the ignorance around the decisions we have to make is mind boggling. I'm sorry you had to go through that. <3

  • This truly hits home for my family. We have always been conservative with our political views but never understood why abortion has to be a topic. This is for a women and her family to decide. We too, we're recently faced with the decision. To follow through with a pregnancy and watch our child suffer and die, or to terminate. We did what we felt was best for our child, and ended the pregnancy. My heart goes out to you and your family. Thank you for writing this.
