Abortion has always been a touchy subject. The right wing has taken it to be an important cause the last few years. It seems like most people sit on one side or another, rarely changing their opinions even though internet blog comments are flooded with debates.

Reproductive health care is super important: Abortions asides, women rely on places like Planned Parenthood for preemptive testing for various diseases as well as birth control. No matter your opinions, they shouldn’t be forced on someone else’s body.

Some pro-choice Hollywood actress bravely shared other women’s experiences and reasons for abortion. The hashtag #shoutyourabortion is has been trending on Twitter for the last few months, with more and more women being less ashamed and more supportive of others who choose to abort.
