Ours is a tradition of stories. We see this from the flawed humanity of Adam and Eve through the tangle of relationships in Genesis and the struggle and redemption of Exodus, to the creative rabbinic interpretations of Midrash and Talmud, to the spiritually rooted Chasidic tales. Stories are essential to understanding one another and informing how we make sense of and choose to live in the world. Right now, we need to be telling and hearing our abortion stories.

 

Our stories paint a different picture. They illustrate how the decisions we make are firmly rooted in our values, which are sometimes conflicting, and how each person among us must have the freedom to make these choices for themselves. When we hear one another’s stories we understand more deeply the role of abortion access in honoring the sanctity of life.

 

We urge you to listen, share your own story, speak out, and join the work to ensure that all people in the US retain access to abortion and the freedom to follow our own consciences and religions.
