srfromcali ,

Thank you!

For being brave, protecting women and defending our rights. You are strong.

Quna KelleiaLeiaLoha ,

Powerful

Gripping, honest and generous. From one sister to another, thank you

Peolguin0227 ,

A much needed conversation

GREY MAYBE is a timely and well done podcast that addresses an issue that impacts everyone. As a woman who has had the abortion experience, I find the stories both powerful and comforting. This is a topic we don’t share enough.

And perhaps if the people who want to deny us the right to control our own bodies and take away our reproductive freedom hear these stories, they will think more thoroughly about what they are really doing.

Thank you, Jillian for creating this forum.

Keep it up!!!
