In the wake of the House passing the bill to defund Planned Parenthood, and the Senate now getting in on the action, women are speaking out about how this law will actually affect people. The viral hashtag #ShoutYourAbortion has people sharing their stories without shame. Because this is America, abortion, and also the Internet, this has been slightly polarizing. Here are the most powerful tweets from the trend: first the ones "For," and then the ones "against." Of the "against" ones, a scan of the tweeter's profile was necessary to prove they weren't from satirical accounts.

Well, did we solve everything? No? How about a dialogue? Yes, volume levels aside, you can't deny at least now people are talking about how this real legislation by our democratically elected government is actually going to change lives. That'll do, hashtag.
