I see being a doula as a political act and I believe that abortion, pregnancy, and childbirth can be a radical act of love and resistance.
I’ve held the hands of thousands of people during their abortions and the compassion and love that I’ve witnessed while supporting someone during their abortion has shaped the kind of birth doula that I am today.
Being queer and actively choosing to work with queer and trans folks makes me a little different than the traditional doula (and I love that!).

LifeNews.com Note: Jill Stanek fought to stop “live birth abortions” after witnessing one as an RN at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois. That led to the Born Alive Infants Protection Act legislation, signed by President Bush, that would ensure that proper medical care be given to unborn children who survive botched abortion attempts.
