Charleston: Breaking Our Silence: Reading Womens Real Abortion Stories

  • Taylor Books 226 Capitol Street Charleston, WV, 25301 United States (map)

This legislative session is shaping up to be the worst for women's health in decades. Legislators are playing politics with women's health and are trying to take away abortion care from low-income women in our community. Sharing our stories is one of the most powerful tools we have.

Join us for an evening of real women’s abortion stories—their reasons, experiences, values, faith, struggles, triumphs, beliefs, and emotions. Sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking, but always thought provoking. And always real. Breaking the mold of what a “normal” abortion must look like.

We will read stories submitted through the My Abortion, My Life website. Do you have a personal story about abortion? Submit a story at
