In Memoriam pays tribute to women who died getting illegal abortions before Roe v Wade. I added tags with names of women who died, dating back to the 1870s. But I’m also asking people to share their experiences.
I go in every week and am greatly moved by the new stories – some heartbreaking, some jubilant and defiant – that an abortion at an early age gave that woman freedom to be who she wanted to be.
