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. "[Abortion] feels like an area that I've recognized the church is lacking in terms of supporting women's experienceânot that churches have to be supportive of abortion, but more that this is a reality for some women that are sitting in the pews."Chorley, 44, recently spoke to CNN as part of a video on women of faith who have abortions and shared that she was in her thirties when she made the tough decision. On top of her struggle with balancing working as a minister and parenting her 2-year-old, her marriage of seven years was falling apart.
