Let's Talk About ... Abortion

Glamour magazine has a great article in this month's issue on abortion that is definitely worth a read.

While we often read about the political debates between the pro-life and pro-choice community in the newspapers, what is often left out of the conversation is women's personal experiences with abortion.

The reality is that 1 in 3 women will have had an abortion by the time they are 45. That's a lot of women who could offer ample advice to those going through the same thing.

What we need to do is create a platform for women to share these stories with one another to give a face to the issue and remove the culture of secrecy we have created around abortion. Hearing women's stories allows people to see the varied reasons why women have abortions and why it is so important to keep Roe v. Wade legal.

Bravo Glamour! We've got to start somewhere.

Have you ever had an abortion? Want to share you story? Please, start the conversation.
