SHOUT MY STORY
There are many deep and personal reasons why women and couples choose life despite difficult gut wrenching situations. We believe that life is precious, sacred, and must be protected. We believe that women deserve better than abortion for their physical and emotional health.
Our compassionate stories of choosing life in difficult situations are heroic and unique. Some of our other stories are about women and men who were once pro-choice but had a change of heart and today are pro-life. These are our stories to shout. #shoutmystoryorg
