Our Initiatives

Her Choice Advocacy Documentary - "Hear Her Voice" Stories of Rape Conception and The Myths of Rape Culture

Her Choice Advocacy’s purpose is to tell our stories, to demonstrate the value and dignity of our lives, and take the discussion of the “hard cases” from “concept” to “real life”.  We strive to reveal the truth; that there have been tens of thousands of mothers pregnant by rape and tens of thousands of rape-conceived children all around us, and that there is help, support and hope for all in those circumstances.

This documentary will show the great number of rape conceptions and the trauma incurred, not only by the rapists, but by society forcing their opinions on these women and children. Stories will include women who aborted the child conceived through rape and then suffered from regret, as well as mothers who had to fight their rapists for custody of her child. HCA’s documentary will share respectful, regular updates on the women helped while maintaining confidentiality when requested and/or appropriate. We will also share updates on what the children are doing now.
