Yesterday, I celebrated the one year anniversary of The Abortion Diary by speaking at Florida Gulf Coast University. It was a packed house! We discussed abortion access, our beliefs, abortion story-sharing and the power of sharing our stories. We also shared our own stories and experiences with each other.
I am stunned by all that this year has brought. 100 stories have been shared with me for The Abortion Diary in the last year. This is a big deal for me because when I came up with this idea, this podcast on abortion stories, I was pretty sure no one would share their story with me. I’m so grateful to them all. They’ve given me, well us all of us, such a gift. We are fortunate to be able to listen to them. Thank you to all The Abortion Diary story-sharers (all 100 of you) for the gift of your stories, and for being brave and badass. And Thank you all for listening.
Celebrate with me and watch this special video story (thanks to all I learned at The Center for Digital Storytelling) that I made about my journey to The Abortion Diary.
