My name is Tiffiny Benjamin, and first and foremost, I AM A MOTHER. I have 2 beautiful sons who are 6 and 3.

I am a second-year law student and the father of a child who developed with anencephaly. My wife and I made the most difficult choice of our lives, to terminate the pregnancy.
I had always been a strong supporter of choice, but as a male I felt removed from the more human side of this issue. This summer has changed so much. We unfortunately live in Cincinnati, Ohio, a notoriously conservative and anti-choice city. I have become outraged by the lack of support or options for people in our situation.

I am very thankful for the courage of these two doctors. I have become painfully aware for the need to protect both the freedom we have and those who allow us to exercise it.
