NARAL President Ilyse Hogue shares her abortion story

“I made the decision that was best for me — to have an abortion — and was able to get compassionate care at a clinic in my own community. Now, years later, my husband and I are parents to two incredible children. My story is not unique. About 1 in 3 American women have abortions by the age of 45, and the majority are mothers just trying to take care of the families they already have. You see, it’s not as simple as bad girls get abortions and good girls have families. We are the same women at different times in our lives — each making decisions that are the best for us.”

GA State Rep. Park Cannon: “We need to trust black women”

“I am a woman, I am African American, I am queer and I am the newest member of the Georgia House of Representatives. I ran for office because I represent the rainbow of voices that too often went unheard at our state Capital. We need to trust black women. Our America is unapologetically ready to stand together.”

EMILY’s List President Stephanie Schriock: Republican leaders “don’t trust women”

“Women don't just fight for women. They fight for families, they fight for fairness, inclusion and justice.No wonder Republican leaders oppose equal pay for women and refuse to stand up for working mothers trying to balance career and family. That’s why they let your boss fire you for using birth control and force us to undergo invasive transvaginal ultrasounds. They don't respect women. They don't trust women. They want to control women.”
