I had an abortion… Or maybe I didn’t

This was the talk that brought me to TEDx Canberra.  The talk that didn’t disappoint and that almost brought tears to my eyes as I felt the passion with which Leslie shared her very important message.

And now it’s available for everybody to watch.  Watch it.  Then sign the pledge to never shame women about their abortions or be silent when others engage in abortion shaming.  Shame does not stop women from having abortions, but what it does is silences them and silent women don’t ask for support.

“Communities cause shame and communities can stop it.”
