Women Share Personal Journey with Abortion

Blogger Angie Jackson stirred up quite the controversy when she documented her abortion through the social network, Twitter. Jackson took the so-called "abortion pill," RU-486, and posted live tweets throughout the process. She also posted a video in which she describes her decision and updates viewers on the events. After the postings, our colleagues over at Vocalo.org invited reaction from all sides of the debate. One voice comes from Jackson – who goes by the moniker, “Angie the Anti-Theist.” The other comes from Natalie of the organization Bound for Life, Chicago. Special thanks to Lloyd King, Jesse Menendez, Luis Perez and Shantell Jamison from Vocalo.org for their help in this production.
