We Asked College Women About Abortion & Reproductive Rights—Here’s What They Had to Say

Here’s the thing: even though we already basically decided as a country that we have the right to abortions, that right continues to be in flux. It’s terrifying and dangerous and, naturally, college women have a lot of Thoughts

So we took to Instagram to ask real college women how they feel about abortion and reproductive justice. Here’s what they had to say: 

“My body, my business.” – Allie

“We deserve them. No ovaries, no opinion!!!” – Logan

“It’s not a matter of reproductive rights, but of human rights. All lives matter.” – Erin


“My body, my life, MY CHOICE.” – Kelsie

“It’s too important to ignore. My body, my choice.” – Kayla


A post shared by Her Campus (@hercampus) on

“Women should be able to do to their body as they please. No terms/regulations should apply. – Margie

“A woman should have a choice.” – Josie

“It’s killing a child, but I get why people do it. You should be allowed up to 8 weeks to abort.” – Carol

“We shouldn’t even have to fight for this. My body, my choice. As simple as that.” – Tameka

“White men SHOULDN’T be in charge of this.” – Michaela

“Making abortion illegal won’t stop abortions. It will stop safe ones, and potentially end lives.” – Mikki

“Abortion is murder. No questions asked.” – Amanda

“Hell yes! Women deserve the right to respect.” – Lauren
