Re: Abortion Stories Oral History Project & Traveling Exhibit

It's such a great idea to tell the stories of the people who have had abortions. Thank you for your courage. I think it's easy to develop an image of baby and men hating women having prolific unprotected sex in a trailer somewhere--an image that supports the concept of someone who needs to be punished for having an abortion.
