DESCRIPTION: This session will explore the stigma of abortion, facilitated by a researcher
from the AbortionData.org project. Participants will be presented with short statements
about abortion in order to discuss collective understandings of abortion stigma. According to
the World Health Organization, 1 in 3 women have an abortion and the diverse values
attached to it can affect the ways women live their lives. We welcome anyone interested in
discussing these ideas openly & respectfully: this session is an invitation to reflect & discuss.
