Planned Parenthood rep discusses abortion and Latinos

We have to open a line of communication with our children, with our families and talk about sexuality like a normal thing. Also, if we have an abortion, to not feel shame about it. To talk about our experience and tell our story, because everyone’s situation is different. As Latinas, we must respect our hermanas, our primas and our comadres if they wish to have an abortion. Maybe abortion isn’t for us, but we must support the decisions of others around their bodily autonomy.
