It definitely can feel like a risk when you’re honest and open but it doesn’t usually result in threats to your personal security. But this is exactly what happened to Amelia Bonow after she frankly, gratefully, and unapologetically posted about her abortion on her Facebook page. Then she gave her famous friend, Lindy West, permission to share a screen shot of it with her 65,000 Twitter fans. #ShoutYourAbortion has transformed from a viral tweet to a movement that aims to shift the way society talks and thinks about abortion.
Amelia discusses creating a safe place for women to talk about abortion, being doxxed after her Facebook post and how her life has changed as a result of that one choice.
