NARAL Pro-Choice Texas
Emily Rooke-Ley is a senior at Skidmore College in upstate New York. She came to Texas for her first time this summer to intern with NARAL Pro-Choice Texas. Emily founded and serves as President of her college's chapter of VOX: Voices for Planned Parenthood. She is looking forward to graduating in May and making her way back to Texas.
When I decided to come to Austin for a summer internship with NARAL Pro-Choice Texas, I knew I was signing up for an interesting few months. What I didn’t know is that at 20 years old, entirely alone in a new city, I would have an abortion myself.
