One out of every three women will have an abortion in her lifetime. But behind that statistic hides overwhelming stress, anxiety, tough decisions and physical symptoms. Behind every “one” is a woman who had to make a potentially life-changing decision. Especially in a society that offers little to no support with a side of judgment, these women deserve our support.

Check out the 1 in 3 campaign for personal stories, statistics, and resources to help end society’s judgment and shame surrounding the “taboo” topic that directly affects one billion women around the world.

To honour the women who have shared their stories by contributing to the campaign, make this week’s 3-Minute Action about supporting the 1 in 3.

Share their stories. Challenge the stigma. Send in your own story. There’s even advice on how to start a movement on your campus. Find a way to show your support for the 1 in 3.
