Roar will publish a first-person story about abortion, “My Abortion: A Daily Story,” every day for at least 365 days.
Today’s story comes from 1 in 3 campaign, which encourages “women who’ve had abortions to end their silence, share their stories, and start a new and more personal conversation about abortion in our society.”
