Abortion is an issue of choice, of bodily autonomy; it is an essential component of reproductive healthcare.

While recognizing the privileges of those who contributed, Shout Your Abortion presents a diverse array of abortion experiences. I l

I'm staunchly pro-choice, but this opened my eyes to some of my own beliefs and judgments. It helped me stretch my thinking about the subject and included a lot of great resources.
