Respecting women, supporting research.

July 29, 2015 | Abortion, Clinic Safety
Group of health professionals.

In the face of recent video attacks making false claims against Planned Parenthood, it may be easy to lose sight of the real stories behind a woman’s experience with abortion. What is the real experience?

In the face of whatever circumstances surround a woman’s individual decision to have an abortion, it can be a comfort to have the option to donate tissue to support life-saving research. The option is thoughtful and generous, and provides a hope for medical breakthroughs against devastating illnesses like Parkinson’s and ALS. Read this article about how “Fetal research both saves and betters lives” from the Star Tribune.

Read this personal story in Time called "Why I Donated Fetal Tissue After My Later Abortion" about one woman who shares her experience.

Thank you
