Angry With Good Reason, And Speaking Up

Abby Zimet

On the worst day of their lives - en route to an abortion after their
fetus was diagnosed with a congenital deformity, with no chance of
survival -  Aaron Gouveia and his wife were met with "Christian"
protesters yelling "God Is Pro-Life" and "You're killing your unborn
baby!" With no plan and "running on pure adrenaline," he confronted them, cellphone camera in tow.

"My wife and I wanted our second child. We loved her. We even had a name for her. Alexandra."


We know things are bad. We know it's worth the fight.

You are part of a strong and vibrant community of thinkers and doers who believe another world is possible. Alone we are weak. Together we can make a difference. At Common Dreams, we don't look away from the world—we are not afraid—our mission is to document those doing wrong and galvanize those doing good. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. We have now launched our annual Summer Campaign. Can you pitch in today?
