Challenging #Abortion Stigma w/ @ameliabonow of #ShoutYourAbortion — #KatieSpeakShow Ep89 05/20/2017

In brief: Last week, lawyer/author Carol Sanger and I talked about the difference between privacy and secrecy and the way our culture, laws, and legal system set us up to feel shame for a common, safe medical procedure. This week, #ShoutYourAbortion co-founder — and Webby award-winner! — Amelia Bonow and I pick up where Carol and I left the conversation, going hard at the The New York Times and others for centering anti-science, anti-healthcare, forced-birth viewpoints. Change becomes possible when we start sharing with each other; join Amelia and I as we do just that!
