My Abortion Story
One in four women in the U.S. will have an abortion by the age of 45. But since the beginning of 2019, more than 250 bills restricting access to abortion care have been introduced in forty one states. Throughout this episode, you will hear from women who share why they decided to have an abortion – women who sent in their own stories, women who have shared publicly in the media or in front of Congress, and Alyssa tells her own abortion story.
You’ll hear from men who understand a woman’s reason to have an abortion is not any of their business or the government’s. Alyssa also sits down with Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America to talk about what’s at risk, the dangers of these restrictive bills, the misconceptions, and why at the end of the day, women need to have the right to choose what they do with their bodies.
