Women take to social media for #ShoutYourAbortion campaign in light of Planned Parenthood bill

- Women took to social media on Monday in an attempt to de-stigmatize abortion by sharing their stories and using the hashtag #ShoutYourAbortion.

Writer and editor Lindy West originated the hashtag.

In light of a bill to defund Planned Parenthood being approved by Congress, she tweeted on September 19, “The campaign to defund PP ‘relies on the assumption that abortion is to be whispered about.’ #ShoutYourAbortion.”

Since then, women all over the county have heard West’s plea and responded, shouting their abortions on various social media platforms.
