House Democrat Pramila Jayapal writes about her abortion


The ongoing ‘ban on abortion bans’ continues, as celebrities and now elected officials are opening up about their personal stories about their abortions to counter recent state’s passing of restrictive abortion laws.

Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D) recently retweeted an op-ed that her colleague in the House, Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D) penned about a past abortion.

“The medical decisions we make about our bodies are personal – but sharing stories can help end the stigmatization attached to abortion,” said Wasserman Schultz. “ We will keep fighting in Congress to #StopTheBans.”
