Today is a good day to thank an abortion provider. In 1996, March 10th was declared National Abortion Provider Appreciation Day. Itâs one day, during Womenâs History Month, for those of us who believe in a womanâs right to choose an abortion to give thanks to those make that choice a safe one. From my time at Planned Parenthood to my current work on the board of an abortion fund, I can safely say that without abortion providers we do not have safe abortions. Considering the current climate surrounding abortion, these doctors are under assault both as supporters of abortion rights and as professionals.
