About the event
Story sharing is liberating. When it comes to reproductive rights, we are determined to march, to scream, to protest, to fight. Yet when it comes to sharing personal abortion stories, there is so much silence. In this salon, Dr. Meera Shah, family practice physician, abortion provider, Chief Medical Officer of Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic, and author of “You're the Only One I've Told: The Stories Behind Abortion” will speak with Aneri Shah, founder, filmmaker and writer focused on women's stories, about how breaking the silence around abortion will ultimately inspire deeper compassion and push policy change towards more equitable access to reproductive care.
