I work for a woman’s right to choose because:

I believe that as women we are human beings, we are capable of making our own decisions, and we should have the freedom to make those decisions.

I believe that each woman, no matter what she chooses to do when confronted with an unwanted pregnancy, is deserving of respect.

I believe that fifteen year-old girl who has made one mistake should not have to give up her future in order to raise a child.

I believe that a loving couple who learns that their child is going to die after being born should not have to suffer through the rest of the pregnancy and birth of that child.

I believe that a rape survivor who was too scared to tell anyone about the rape should not be forced to bear that child.

I’ve been working for reproductive justice for less than a year. The women I work with are among the most caring people I have ever met. I’m proud to work with them, and I’m proud of myself. When I hear stories of the women I’ve helped, I realize we do this work to help women who, for whatever reason, are not able to have a child at this point in time. We help these women have better lives and more successful futures.

I am Dr. Tiller.
