If you had told me a year ago that I would publicly write about abortion, I never would have believed you. Yet here I am.

The recent leaked opinion from the Supreme Court indicating that the historic Roe v. Wade case may be overturned has brought this controversial issue to the forefront of public discourse once again, and this time I am more strongly drawn to the conversation than ever before – I think because I find myself as a 20-something married woman hoping to start a family in the next couple of years.

This column articulated well what I believe most of us understand about the complexity of this issue.

I appreciated the disarming manner in which the author invites the reader to engage with their own life experiences and nuanced views, and then invite others into respectful dialogue - open to seeking to understand their life experiences and nuanced views.
