NAF Patient Partnership Participant Featured in Mother Jones
As states continue to pass abortion restrictions, Dana Weinstein talks to Mother Jones about her abortion experience and how these restrictions would have affected her ability to make the decisions that were best for her family. Dana chose to terminate her wanted pregnancy after she learned that her fetus was missing the main part of its brain and would likely not survive.
With the additional barriers that anti-abortion activists have erected around the country, Weinstein worries about other women in her position. “Abortion is a right, and if that right is taken away, people like me won’t be able to make the choice that is right for their child…,” she says. “I couldn’t sit back and watch women’s rights be chipped away by people who have never walked in these shoes.”
Dana is a member of NAF’s Patient Partnership, which works to include the voices of women who have had an abortion in the public discussions about this issue.
