Anti-Choice Blogger Cruelly Mocks Women's Experiences

Earlier this week, Nancy Keenan, President of NARAL Pro-Choice America, posted an article on, denouncing an anti-choice blogger’s treatment of the Women’s Stories section of the NARAL website. The Women’s Stories section is intended as a space where women can share their personal experiences and connect with others. Their stories are important because they highlight the complex circumstances and emotions involved in what is often a very difficult decision. In doing so, they also serve as a powerful reminder of why we continue to fight to protect a woman’s right to choose.

An anti-choice blogger took these women’s stories, and cruelly parodied them as “Testimonials.” The article provides one example, where the blogger crudely mocks the circumstances of one woman’s pregnancy and the difficult decision she and her husband had to face. The blogger not only mocks these women, but perverts the stories in ways that conveniently ignore the complicated circumstances, some life-threatening, that women face everyday.
