On Monday VOX held a table-ing with Purdue College Democrats to support the 1-in-3 campaign which aims to rid stigma and shame when it comes to abortion, utilizing the power of story telling in hopes to change the way we talk about abortion. I got the artsy/cute and personal story pictures from Tumblr and I wish their was a way to cite them or something because I feel bad. But hopefully no one minds :x anyway we handed out most of the tiny booklets that contain a few select stories, tons of buttons and stickers, and even had 30 signatures of people pledging to speak out against shaming women! I was able to engage in open and honest conversation with strangers, and only had one scary old lady tell me that when women have abortions that they are killing god s children, so that’s neat.
