Youth Testify is a collaborative leadership program for young people who’ve had abortions created by Advocates for Youth’s 1 in 3 Campaign and the National Network of Abortion Funds’ We Testify program. Youth Testify provides training and support to equip young people, aged 17-24, with the skills to share their stories with their peers, the media, and legislators, to shift the culture of stigma and center the voices and needs of young people in the fight for abortion access and reproductive justice.
We Testify, a program of the National Network of Abortion Funds, seeks to build the power and leadership of abortion storytellers, particularly those of color, those from rural and conservative communities, those who are queer identified, those with varying abilities and citizenship statuses, and those who needed support when navigating barriers while accessing abortion care.
#ShoutYourAbortion is a decentralized network of individuals talking about abortion on our own terms and creating space for others to do the same. SYA is everywhere: on the sides of buildings, in art and outfits and zines and social media. Abortion is normal. Our stories are ours to tell. This is not a debate.
The Abortion Diary Podcast is a space for people to speak out against the shame, stigma, secrecy and isolation surrounding abortion by generating, sharing and receiving personal stories.

My Abortion, My Life is changing the conversation by creating safe spaces for sharing abortion stories and having nuanced, respectful conversations about abortion experiences.

Abort Mission is a stigma-fighting organization that includes the Later Abortion Patients Project.
Later abortions stories are often ones of tragedy and loss. For others they are stories of relief. They feature struggles with hope, women betrayed by their bodies and the incredible complexity of pregnancy. Many stories are ones of overcoming the many obstacles and restrictions our states have placed on these procedures.
Project Voice is a resource of sharing and support that brings together personal stories. Millions of women have abortions, yet many feel secretive and alone in their decision.
