Via Feministing, I learned that yesterday was the National Day of Appreciation for Abortion Providers.  So even if I’m one day late, I still want to say thank you.

Thank you to everyone who provides access to safe, affordable abortions.  Thank you for giving women the freedom of their own bodies.  Thank you for enduring the violence, the hostility, and the vitriol of others.  Thank you for risking your lives to give someone else a better one.

If you want, you can say thank you here.
