Sometimes our bones break

Forced birth is a humanitarian emergency.
Such cruelty to women and girls is overwhelmingly disgusting.


How many women who become pregnant during domestic abuse will be beaten so badly by their abusers who don't want a baby?

How many children will have to endure the extreme pain of birthing? How many will have to carry the seed of their rapists, making their trauma unimaginable?

How many will endure a broken pelvis, tailbone or sometimes even bladder/rectal damage during forced births?


Yes. Sometimes our bones break.
