When Brittany Mostiller was in her early 20s, she had two abortions. She didn’t want anyone to know. “I didn’t want folks knowing what I was going through,” she says, “especially because I didn’t feel like they would support me in any way.” And though she never regretted her decision, she says, she felt pressure to keep quiet. “Society tells us not to talk about it. The stigma and shame forces you into silence, although folks were still having abortions.”
