#YouKnowMe prompts hundreds of women to tell their abortion stories on Twitter

In the wake of terrifying abortion laws being enacted in multiple states, women are rightly infuriated and scared at what looks like the crumbling of reproductive rights as we’ve long known them. It’s prompting women to share stories about their own abortions using #YouKnowMe.

The hashtag appears to have been spearheaded by actress and late-night host Busy Philipps, who recently shared her own abortion story on her show. She included the phrase “you know me” when telling her audience to drive home the point that so many women have had abortions, chances are, we all know someone who has.
