Support for Survivors
Natalie’s Abortion, tells the unshared story of a woman who has to deal with a rape related pregnancy, abortion, and the constant bombardment of society’s unsolicited opinion about her decision. The story shows the ultimate triumph of a rape survivor as she finds her own voice and takes the power back in her life. I would love to have you view my film, Natalie’s Abortion, on Vimeo and leave a review to share this important message to help empower other rape survivors. Your support will not only help my film reach those who need to see it most, it is also a call to action for all of us to speak out against violence and better honor survivors of trauma.
Natalie’s Abortion was censored on Amazon, but it is now available on Vimeo. Thank you for taking the time to watch the movie Natalie’s Abortion. Will you leave a review?
Bombarded by Society's Opinions,
But Society remains Silent when it Really Counts
People are typically silent when it comes to the 1 in 4 women who have been sexually assaulted. We see a society that does not address the frequency in which women are harassed, or how often women have to go out of their way in attempts to avoid sexually aggressive behavior. Sharing our support for survivors—no matter what our political belief or religious background—can make or break a community’s ability to better process opinions on abortion, and address what they perceive as right or wrong behavior instead of forcing moral opinions that can trigger trauma for someone who has experienced sexual assault or a rape related pregnancy. These are tough subjects, but my intention is to share a story of survival that can uplift everyone and shift the conversation towards justice for all women.

2nd Amendment Rights for Survivors
With the current political climate of extreme polarization women are often pushed to choose between sovereignty over their own bodies or the right to protect themselves. The left pushes for gun control, while the right seeks to restrict the reproductive choices of women, even in cases of rape and incest. Neither group seems to have any concern for the women who are stuck in the middle of their battle. Rather than allow two extremist groups to force women to choose between one or the other, women can utilize their 2nd Amendment Rights and maintain sovereignty over their own bodies.

Women maintaining Sovereignty over their Own Bodies
Sovereignty - supreme power or authority
Proverbs 4:27 Do not turn to the right or the left; keep your foot from evil (NIV)
Psalms 37: 28 For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints, they are preserved forever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off. (KJV)
Politicians, Pastors, Campaigners, and a Woman. Only one of these people has sovereignty over the woman's body.
