The hashtag, #ShoutYourAbortion, was started on Saturday by activists Lindy West and Amelia Bonow in response to the House of Representatives 241-187 vote to suspend federal funding for Planned Parenthood.

"The campaign to defund PP ‘relies on the assumption that abortion is to be whispered about," West tweeted, inspiring people countrywide to "shout their abortion" stories.
