A Mother And Daughter Discuss Their Abortions

Seattle-based activists Amelia Bonow and Lindy West have been pushing for more conversations about abortion with the social media campaign #shoutyourabortion. The campaign was created as a direct response to the GOP push to defund Planned Parenthood.

Sound Effect invited mother and daughter Patty and Samie Detzer to discuss their experiences with abortion.
