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."

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
