Amidst the outrage and sadness that has come with the recent Planned Parenthood videos, something beautiful has arisen. Twitter users have been using the hashtag #UnplannedParenthood to share stories of those who faced unexpected pregnancies and chose life, rather than abortions at Planned Parenthood.
Stories are told in 140 characters or less of the joy, gratitude, and love that these unplanned pregnancies brought to the world. Below are a few examples:
I was an unmarried, broke, pregnant college student. That baby is now a neuroscience major, and the eldest of 7. #unplannedparenthood
