You’re the Only One I’ve Told: The Stories Behind Abortion
Abortion is an incredibly divisive issue in the United States, but for the people that undergo the procedure, it’s far from black and white. There are many reasons why someone might choose to terminate a pregnancy, from medical complications issues of body dysmorphia to a pregnancy happening at the wrong time or with the wrong person. The stories in You’re the Only One I’ve Told encompass these reasons and more, giving readers a nuanced view into an extremely complex topic that politicians often showcase in terms of simple morality. Readers will get a sense of how abortion laws impact average people, of the complicated emotions that surround the procedure, and of how life-changing it can be for someone to have the simple ability to decide what’s right for their own body and their own life. The stories have been compiled and edited by Meera Shah, a doctor who specializes in sexual and reproductive health, which includes providing abortions. Told with insight and compassion, and a firm grasp of respect, readers will walk away from this thoughtful book with a better understanding of exactly why abortion access is so crucial to so many people.
