Who Are We?
To do this, CHOICES4LIFE
Founder Juda Myers was conceived when eight men raped her mother. Her mother, Ann, was not only devastated by the crime against her, but also the attitude of her own mother who wanted Ann to have abortion. Ann refused and, for the safety of her daughter, placed Juda up for adoption. They were eventually reunited when Juda was an adult.
Juda speaks across the United States and internationally. This includes Harvard, before Congress and politicians, and the United Nations, sharing the heart of victims of rape. She says, “It’s not just about my personal story but about the millions of unheard stories. The survivors’ words need to be heard and told in hopes of changing the future of these women and their children.” She, along with many other mothers and children conceived in rape, are available for speaking at conferences, banquets, for news reports, and any other meeting. A full audio/visual presentation will leave audiences captivated and educated.
Juda has written a book about her own story titled, “Hostile Conception Living with Purpose: Real Life, Real Forgiveness, Real Freedom.” Available through Amazon in paperback and audio form, a portion of the proceeds go back to CHOICES4LIFE. This book details her struggle to understand and forgive her mother, the rapists, and those who believe she would be better off dead.
CHOICES4LIFE provides solutions and healing to traumatized and severely wounded women. The goal is to meet the need of every women pregnant after rape, through providing resources, counseling, and other assistance.
Many mothers are disowned by their family, or they are forced to abort their child. Friends are all too eager to tell the mother she doesn’t deserve or want the child conceived in rape, and if she claims to, she deemed a liar. What she really does not deserve is is being treated with disbelief or disgust when she chooses to give birth. The rapist should be the one punished, not the women and children.
