WATCH “THE CHOICE” And You’ll Never think About Abortion the same way again.
One in four American women will have an abortion over a lifetime. That’s double the number of women who will be diagnosed with breast cancer in a lifetime (one in eight). Yet, this staple of women’s reproductive health care remains shrouded in taboo and stigma. Because it has been so politicized, it is possible that Roe v. Wade will be eroded or overturned in this term of the Supreme Court.
I have created “The Choice” as a way to break through the stigma and broaden the conversation around abortion. In this work of fiction, each line tells is a different woman’s story. Coupled with the profiles of diverse women, it shows the complicated feelings and circumstances that surround abortion from the point of view of women who have had them. Once you see “The Choice,” you’ll never think about abortion the same way again.
