“Hello! I am a person who is training to become an abortion provider. As you can imagine, it is really f*ing weird to be one of me, especially lately! I think maybe you have some questions?”
This essay has stuck with me since I read it almost 3 years ago. It’s actually the first article I read on The Hairpin, and I’ve been a loyal reader ever since. It’s meaningful because her perspective is one you don’t get every day, even though this is a subject that plenty of people have opinions about. Reading her story actually made me wish I had any interest in the medical field whatsoever, because what this woman is doing is brave and amazing and I kind of want to be doing it too. Check this out regardless of your views, and feel free to let me know what you think.
