From pro-choice author Melissa Harris-Perry:
“… Abortion still carries tremendous social shame in addition to its personal psychological burden.
Activists for reproductive rights have a hard time convincing women and families who have terminated to be part of a movement that protects the right to terminate. Many understandably prefer not to be publicly associated with the stigma and potential violence that comes with standing up for choice.”
