This is really appalling! Thousands of women and girls who have had abortions go on Twitter to speak up about abortion and to share their stories in what they call a movement to end the shame and stigma that comes with aborting a child.
According to them, the #ShoutYourAbortion hashtag is there to give women voices to speak up because no woman is supposed to feel shame over the choices she makes with her body, especially the termination of a fetus.
See tweets below:
I've never wanted to have children, so I had an abortion. I'm thriving, without guilt, without shame, without apologies. #ShoutYourAbortion

My abortion was in 2008. It saved my life and allowed me to escape an abusive, emotionally and physically violent man. #ShoutYourAbortion

Abortions are like tampons, they'd be free & available in every public restroom if men needed them too. #ShoutYourAbortion

Abortion should not be a source of shame. Regardless of the reason, the choice of what happens to your body is yours. #ShoutYourAbortion

Abortion is a medical procedure, not a moral quagmire. It is more dangerous to give birth than it is to have an abortion. #shoutyourabortion

My abortion was in '07. I didn't want kids then and still don't. I'm managing my own wellness. #ShoutYourAbortion

But not everyone agrees with them. A lot of people also came out to tweet against the hashtag.

I'm sorry but regardless of the circumstances perhaps ending a life should come with just a tiny bit of guilt. #ShoutYourAbortion

Apparently the words “born alive” are not descriptive enough to inform the #ShoutYourAbortion killers that babies, not fetuses, were killed!

As pro-choice as I am, #ShoutYourAbortion sounds like a bad BILLY ON THE STREET game

I think #ShoutYourAbortion again proves my theory that modern liberalism is nothing more than secular Satanism. A cult of death worshipers.
