Why This Reverend Is Talking About an Abortion She Had 12 Years Ago
SELF

Susan Chorley had an abortion. Now, the ordained Baptist minister is on a tour of churches around the country to share her story. "I think opening up space for conversation around women's realities and abortion is really important," Chorley, who's based in Boston, tells SELF.
