Weekly Salvo


Two weeks ago, friends Amelia Bonow and Lindy West created the hashtag #ShoutYourAbortion on Twitter. Their goal, according to The New York Times, was "to encourage women who had kept their abortions secret to speak up – in an effort to reframe the debate on the subject." Not surprisingly, the effort went viral, drawing over 150,000 Twitter posts, both positive and negative. Described by the Times as "[t]he Seattle women who chose to bring abortion from the shadows this time," Bonow and West were interviewed about their reasons for starting the campaign. "One of the final hurdles is getting it into people's heads that the reason for an abortion doesn't matter," said Ms. West. And from Ms. Bonow, "Even women who support abortion rights have been silent, and told they were supposed to feel bad about having an abortion."

The fact is that many women do feel bad after having an abortion, but not because anyone told them they should.

For more on this story, read the NY Times piece here.

More on this topic from Salvo:

•In "A Buried Grief," read about women who believed wholeheartedly in their decisions to have abortions, suffered later as a result, and eventually found healing.

•And in "Harm's Way: Men, Abortion & Hemingway," read about the often-ignored issue of men and abortion.
