Will you join us by giving the Gift of a Story?
True to TMI Project’s mission, let’s begin with a story:
In 1968, as a teen, I found myself pregnant prior to Roe v. Wade. I was forced to carry the pregnancy to term and relinquish the child -- a painful and traumatizing experience. It impacted the rest of my life. So much so, that I eventually become an ob-gyn physician. I have provided abortions for thousands of people, many of whom face great odds to access this critical care.
Thanks to the work of TMI Project and donors like you, this January I will be sharing my story with the world. By sharing my experience, I hope to convey the importance of abortion rights and reproductive justice to the health and lives of people; and cut through the stigma to evoke understanding, empathy, compassion, and a commitment to act during this perilous time for reproductive rights.
- Maureen, storyteller
TMI Project hopes to raise $15,000 to continue the urgent work to turn the tide and address the most critical issues that we are facing at this moment in history. Your support ensures that Stories for Choice is a program that is accessible to everyone!
Yet, nearly 2/3 of Americans do not want to see Roe Vs. Wade overturned. That’s why TMI Project is raising funds to support Stories for Choice, programming that has personal stories about reproductive justice at its core.
Your gift creates the stories that educate, eradicate stigma, and inspire action to protect reproductive freedom for all people.
"Please support TMI Project so that I can share my story about infertility, an aspect of reproductive justice that is often overlooked or untold, especially in the African American Community. It is important that society understands how many people suffer from infertility. Many of these individuals are not afforded the rights to have biological children due to disparities that include a lack of resources, finances, education, insurance, or underlying health concerns."
"As a teen mom, a Mormon, and a rabid pro-lifer, I once won a college debate about abortion by handing out tiny footprint pins to make everyone in the audience feel guilty for supporting abortion. I later changed from being “pro-life” to pro-choice so I know it is possible. Your donation today will help me share my story in Stories for Choice and may help others like me find a kernel of truth that changes their mind."
"Please support TMI Project this holiday season so that I can tell my story about selective reduction. Even an unlikely person (like me, a lesbian mom) needs access to abortion, and the world needs to know that."
"I’m calling on you to support TMI Project so that I can tell my story as part of Stories for Choice. My goal is to remind the world that it’s okay for a person to decide not to have children and there’s no need to feel guilty about it."
