049: The Abortion Series - Katie

Boss Barista is proud to present The Abortion Series, a collection of stories about abortion while working in coffee. Today, we meet Katie, a barista in the midwest who talks about scheduling her abortion around her work schedule, keeping quiet about liberal ideas in a conservative space, and ponders if she's told her mom yet. 

These stories are both intensely personal and unremarkable - we hope hearing everyday stories about abortion helps normalize the experience for you, wherever you are. If you have a story to share, please email us at bossbaristapodcast@gmail.com.
