Busy Philipps Called For Women To Share Their Abortion Stories
Busy Philipps called for women to share their abortion stories, and thousands have already joined the #YouKnowMe movement on social media. Her comment was sparked by a new bill that Georgia's governor, Brian Kemp, signed into law, which aims to ban abortion when a fetal heartbeat is detected at six weeks. Since then, the Alabama Senate voted to pass a bill that would effectively ban abortions in the state and criminalize doctors who provide them. Philipps' message led to a flood of personal stories from women who have also had abortions. Many people explained the reasoning behind their decision, like not feeling ready to become a parent or not being able to financially support a child.
