WE NEED SUBMISSIONS! END STIGMA AROUND ABORTION!

1 in 3 women will have an abortion in their lifetime. Women make up 52% of the U.S. population. Yet the right to get an abortion has been under constant attack since Roe v. Wade in 1973 legalized abortion. There has been restriction after restriction limiting access to abortion and contraception in the states’ attempt to control women’s bodies and reproduction.

We believe that women should have equal access to healthcare, free from harassment and social stigma. A free choice can only be made when there are no economic, political, or social constraints. This is why we are committed to ending the stigma around abortion by creating a space for women and those close to women who have had abortions to share their stories.

What do I submit?

A photo of yourself holding up a note describing your experience getting an abortion (ex: why you did it, how it made you feel, your experience at the clinic, social pressures you felt to get an abortion or to not get one, etc.).  Whatever you feel comfortable with sharing.  The point of this is to collect all of our stories and share them to take the stigma off of abortion, a routine medical procedure.  

For this reason, we think that a photo with a note and your face (if you are comfortable with that) is more personal and will emphasize an important fact that the GOP seems to forget: women are people, and we have the right of self-determination over our bodies and our lives.  

At the end of your note, write “I am the 1 in 3” similar to the “I am the 99% slogan.”

How do I post my photo story?

Email the photo and a typed description if you would like to RAGEdenton@gmail.com
