Anonymous asked: I'm getting an abortion on Tuesday. I'm fucking scared of the people who will be waiting for me outside. What should I do? This is such a random ask but after reading your blog I feel like you would give me a real answer. You don't have to if you want to.
I am sure there will be protesters there, and they WILL be holding signs probably with graphics that are disturbing. Just reassure yourself in knowing these are scare tactics, and 100% are embellished and false. If people are there, they will probably be pretty loud, so take an MP3 player with you to try and drown out the noise.
Any of my followers have any advice?
I would call the clinic first. Some clinics don’t get a lot of protesters, and some that do have volunteers that will walk you to and from the clinic. Also, there are people who work as abortion doulas, people trained to support you. You can see if there are any in your area. Other than that, hold your head high and ignore those (pardon my language) motherfuckers. Know that you are 1000% better than them.
