Los Angeles (AFP) – A social media campaign launched by three US activists to denounce the stigma surrounding abortion has gone viral as women have shared their experiences, though pro-life campaigners have hit back.
The hashtag “#ShoutYourAbortion” was started on Twitter over the weekend after the US House of Representatives voted to cut funding for Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest women’s health care services provider, as Republicans pushed for a probe of the organization.
Lindy West, Amelia Bonow and Kimberly Morrison said they began the campaign in a bid to encourage women to reclaim the conversation about abortion.
Bonow shared her own story on Facebook along with the hashtag and since then thousands of women across the globe have detailed their experience.
To me, one of the most startling aspects of this current society is the need displayed to not just accept sin, but to celebrate it.
Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. – Daniel 12:10
