‘1 in 3’ Speakout Offers What’s Often Missing in Abortion Debate: Personal Stories [Video]

Rewire Staff

The event is part of a national movement aimed at refocusing the debate on abortion from a political perspective to a personal one.

On Tuesday, January 19, a live-streamed abortion speak-out will feature a diverse group of women who will discuss their personal experiences with abortion and abortion care.

Hosted by the 1 in 3 Campaign, and streaming live on this page beginning at noon Eastern Standard Time, the event is part of a national movement aimed at refocusing the debate on abortion from a political perspective to a personal one.

“The Supreme Court justices need to hear the real effects of restrictive abortion laws on women like this one in Texas,” said Advocates for Youth President Debra Hauser, who shared her story in a statement. “What is missing from this issue are our personal stories. The reality is that one in three women will have an abortion in her lifetime. Rather than making care prohibitively expensive and unduly difficult, we should work to protect safe access to abortion care and make sure women receive the care they need.”
