Abortion stories told live

The first-known abortion speak-outs, where women stood up to tell their abortion stories publicly, were held when terminating pregnancies was illegal. The radical feminist group Redstockings gathered in a church basement in New York in 1969 to talk about their experiences. Thursday's abortion speak-out will look a very different. It will be live-streamed over eight hours and include more than 100 storytellers.
