Alison Loris said during the July 6, 2017 Story Night that the topic of abortion is often discussed by men, politicians and theorists, and not enough by women who face the question head on. So that night, she told her story. It was the third story of the night and helped continue a tone that would carry the night, that of storytellers discussing challenging topics. She wasn't alone in that regard.
Alison told her story at Story Night, held regularly on the first Thursday of the month at the Cloverleaf Sports Bar and Grill in Bremerton.
The Guttmacher Institute has information about abortion frequency and other data.
The song Secure Yourself is performed by the Indigo Girls.
Thank you for listening. We look forward to hearing your story.
