This is one of the first stories I wrote after I began to think seriously about the possibility of me becoming a writer. It’s an attempt to personalize abortion, an issue that is most often condemned before its fully understood.
One of the theories that I constantly maintain is that people do not care about an issue until it happens to them. Also, they cannot fully comprehend something until a face is put on it.
Go to http://1in3campaign.org/ to watch videos of women sharing their stories about abortion, and maybe, also share your own.
Make a pact to share any of the stories you heard with 3 people, and encourage them to do the same.
