This zine serves as a way to help readers process a range of feelings and thoughts related to abortion. Rest assured — feelings of relief, sadness, confusion, happiness, doubt, hope, detachment, and gratitude are all common reactions to terminating a pregnancy. You cannot choose to stop having a feeling any more than you can choose to stop feeling warmth or cold on your skin. Feelings are your emotional sense of your experiences, environment, internal emotional temperature, and your spiritual barometer. Embrace your feelings as a sign of your humanity — that you are complex, creative, varied, and wonderful. Remember that feelings are windows into yourself in a given moment, are neither good or bad, and are always worth honoring. More than anything, feelings are NOT controllable, something to be ashamed of, or things that should lead to self-judgment.
