With many Democrats voicing their disdain over the leaked document suggesting the Supreme Court was debating overruling Roe v. Wade, it wasn’t all that surprising to hear Democrat Representative Gwen Moore of Wisconsin share her stance on the highly controversial issue. While some activists claim it is a woman’s right to have an abortion, the Representative not only stood up for that right, but admitted that she never once regretted having her own abortion. 

Speaking to ELLE, the Democrat noted, “There were no complications, no problems, no difficulties. I never looked back, and I was never sorry. I never felt like I did something that was inappropriate for me or my family or my situation. I was very, very grateful.”

Recalling her story, Moore detailed how she had gotten pregnant at 18-year-old and had a child. Just a year later, at 19, the Democrat would get pregnant again. “I had no money, no job, no occupational preparedness; I wasn’t even able to adequately take care of the one child I had. I was desperate for an abortion,” she noted. “Because of my college connections, I had a network of white feminist women. I got the phone number of a doctor in Madison, Wisconsin, and he referred me to a fund. It was run by these primarily upper-middle-class white women who provided funding for abortion care. They gave me the money for a round-trip ticket to New York City and a car service to and from the facility.”

The Representative added, “I really needed to reclaim my life, and having an abortion made a huge difference. I was able to get a degree. I was able to get some work skills under my belt and lean into my talents. I had my second child when my daughter was eight years old, and those eight years really made a difference in terms of making sure I wasn’t permanently mired in poverty.”

As for the leaked document that has caused so much hysteria, it reads, “The Constitution does not prohibit the citizens of each State from regulating or prohibiting abortion. Roe and Casey arrogated that authority. We now overrule those decisions and return that authority to the people and their elected representatives.”
