Actress Busy Philipps decided to take it to Twitter to ask her followers to share their pregnancy termination stories after the Alabama state Senate passed the country’s strictest bill. She encouraged them to use the hashtag #YouKnowMe, and it resonated with thousands of women.
As you probably know already, the Alabama’s new legislation is truly an extreme measure which criminalizes the procedure in all cases, (with the only exception being if the life of the pregnant woman is at risk).
Philipps’ call gained a lot of popularity in a very short period of time, and hundreds of women shared their own abortion stories.
They portrayed a wide array of reasons why a woman might choose to end her pregnancy, and you can check some of the #YouKnowMe stories below:
