Abortion when queer

Requesting an abortion when you are queer (bisexual, trans or lesbian)

Queer folks can have consensual sex and get pregnant but can also be exposed to sexual assault. How one gets pregnant in relation to one’s sexual orientation or gender identity is no bodies business, including health providers unless you offer them information regarding your health needs.

Some queer folks do want contraception.

If you have an unintended or unsupportable pregnancy it is important that you feel able to request an abortion and do not feel pressured into explaining how you got pregnant.

We are all different and for all people with wombs who are sexually assaulted and land up pregnant it is very traumatic.
