Nine women shared their stories on twitter, detailing the physical and emotional abuse they suffered.

When I told my partner I was pregnant, he took me to the woods and beat me. He said “Kill it or I will kill you next time” He left me there to walk home. I knew he was telling the truth. I had an abortion a few weeks later. You have no clue what women go through.

I was not celebrating the joy of this pregnancy either. This was not my first beating. I did not tell this because I regret having an abortion. I told this because people have no fucking clue what goes on behind closed doors.

I had a man walk me through his property to inform me they would never find my body if I didn’t have an abortion. I knew he meant it too. Wow. Thank you for sharing. I’m so sorry that happened to you.

The man who walked me through his property had never been violent with me. He never demonstrated violence until that day. But hey, thanks for playing.

My stepdad threw my mom across the living room and she lost my little sister the next day and we were told that he would kill us both if we said anything. We believed him. My mother took it to her grave. He molested me,and beat me. Some of us do know. I found peace with my wife.
