No Choice: How This Woman Went From Unplanned Pregnancy to Abortion Activism

A new video series published on BillMoyers.com titled “No Choice” highlights the abortion stories of eight women through emotional testimonies and photo slideshows. The videos seek to highlight the history of abortion rights in the United States, the impact of this struggle on the lives of women, especially those holding marginalized identities, and contextualize these stories in light of our volatile political climate, which threatens reproductive rights and Roe v. Wade.


Activist Gaylon Alcaraz shares her story of abortion and the journey toward becoming a leader in the reproductive justice movement. Throughout her story of relationships and subsequent motherhood, Alcaraz discusses abortion and reproductive justice for women of color.
