Given the stunning overturn of the landmark court case Roe v. Wade, we decided to do a little something different. First—if you haven't had a chance to read up on the news yet, let our latest installment of While You Were Out remedy that for you. Second, we invite you to take a pause from shrill media and read some of the human stories of women who have been intimately affected by unplanned pregnancies, abortion, and pregnancy loss. Below are just ten we’ve published at Verily. We invite you to read them this week, and if they move you, share them with others.

In addition, we have some very exciting news to share with you in the coming weeks—be sure to stay tuned. And if you’ve received this email from a friend, be sure to sign up for our newsletter to be among the first to hear what we have coming up!
