Angela  Roberts

Angela Roberts

In 1979 Angela Roberts was pregnant with twins when one of them passed away a few minutes after birth. Being told she had a stillborn child was so painful that Angela couldn’t cope and she blamed herself for Natasha’s death. Angela was afraid she had done something wrong. Perhaps even more hurtful was how everyone seemed to deny Natasha ever existed. In trying to regain control over her emotions and her life, 25 years later she found out the hospital did an autopsy on her baby and had kept her organs without Angela’s permission. She discovered other babies had also been kept without the parents’ knowledge. This resulted in her starting an organization called “I Have Rights, Too” which is a support group for parents who had a stillbirth or loss of a baby.
