Yet, 73% of Americans do not want to see Roe v. Wade overturned. That’s why TMI Project is raising funds to support Stories for Choice, programming that has personal stories about reproductive rights at its core.
When reproductive healthcare is inaccessible, women die. Our lives are literally on the line. There is a generation of women who survived illegal abortions pre-Roe v. Wade, whose stories need to be shared before it’s too late.
“Sharing my story about giving my son up for adoption in 1965 transformed my identity from victim to survivor."
"The world needs to know what happened to women before Roe Vs. Wade; to hear how many women died from illegal abortions; that those of us who survived to tell our stories were the lucky ones."
"I'm lucky to be alive. So many young people today know so little about our history pre-Roe v. Wade. It’s time to let them know."
"Writing my story brought up a lot of triggers, but every time I shared it, the release was amazing, and people in the audience let me know it helped them."
"In a short number of years, there will be no more witnesses to tell about that time of back alleys, unsafe, dangerous conditions, and the desperation of not knowing how and where to get help. We must share our stories. We cannot go back."
