WASHINGTON, DC—Americans United for Life is proud to launch #myLIFEstory, an innovative project inviting Americans of all ages, backgrounds, and beliefs that have experienced the trauma of abortion to break their silence and share their stories. Beginning with the impactful story of Catherine Glenn Foster,  President & CEO of Americans United for Life, the group hopes to hear from thousands across the country to truly understand the after-effects of abortion on women, families, and communities. 

“My abortion changed my life forever,” said Catherine Glenn Foster, President & CEO of Americans United for Life. “For so many years I could count on one hand the number of people I had even told about this tragically formative experience. My first step towards healing from abortion was to tell my story. And that is why I’m so excited to launch myLIFEstory, to give women an empathetic and non-judgmental forum to tell their story. As a post-abortive parent or grandparent, a parent who considered abortion, or as the son or daughter of parents who shared their abortion experience, you may feel alone or isolated, but you are far from it. You may feel trapped in the shadows of secrecy and shame, but you’ll find hope—and compassion—waiting in the light. No matter how you feel, if you have had an abortion yourself or if you have been impacted by one, I want to hear from you.”

Americans United for Life (AUL) is a nonprofit, public-interest law and policy organization that holds the distinction of being the first national pro-life organization in America—incorporated in 1971.
