What I originally posted was from buzzfeed news and the flip-flopping in using the word women and then the author trying to use any other word f on woman was very confusing.

This caused me to go down the rabbit hole and saw that March of dimes has already written on the topic years ago.

As a survivor of sexual abuse and domestic violence which resulted in and continued threw pregnancy from my ex abuser and family members. I used to think these experiences were unique to me and I was overreacting to being mistreated.

The local Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault Resource Center was life-changing for me and helped me break the cycle of abuse. My personal experiences are a major driving force in why I am a radical feminist who cares about child safeguarding.
