Diversity in the Waiting Room

"There were many women in the clinic that morning.  The diversity in that waiting room truly astounded me.  Teens, middle aged women, twenty and thirty-somethings, all of differing ages and socio-economic backgrounds.  Some in business clothes, others with tattoos and piercings.  Some looked as though they had just walked out of the pages of an All-American J. Crew catalog."
"I do not feel guilt or remorse for choosing abortion, but I have felt grief over my silence.  So many of us have a story or a secret.  This is mine."
