Roar will publish a first-person story about abortion, “My Abortion: A Daily Story,” every day for at least 365 days.
The next audiovisual story comes from Not Alone, an organization that exists to let women who have had abortions know that they are part of a community.
Amy S had not accepted her sexuality, but she found a lot of positive feedback from her inner circle when she started dating guys. Apparently, she had found the perfect man, only he was abusive and got her pregnant. Her abortion was the first step into gaining control of her life, come out as gay, and become vocal about both gay and reproductive rights. In the following video, Amy tells her story.
