Carey, 61

At 15 years old I was raped by a 17 year old boy that I was dating. My father asked me if I wanted to marry this boy since I was pregnant. I said no, that I was raped but men didn't believe that word in 1965. It was always the woman's fault.  My father did finally send me to Puerto Rico with my mother to have an illegal abortion. I was able to go on and finish school and have a full career. I always wanted 12 children but my career prevented it. My husband had 2 children that I had the privilege of helping raise from young teens. We have to protect the right that Roe v. Wade has given us today and make sure that insurance is there for others that need the help.
