Fight the stigma of abortion: Leslie Cannold

In the spirit of TEDxWomen 2012, this week’s TEDxTalks showcase ideas from inspirational women across a range of topics.

“Silent women can’t ask for support.”

One in three Australian, British, and American women will have an abortion in their lifetime, but public discourse remains largely deprived of their stories. Leslie Cannold blames a culture that shames abortion, and calls for an end to the silence. (Filmed at TEDxCanberra)

Each week, we choose four of our favorite talks, highlighting just a few of the enlightening speakers from the TEDx community, and its diverse constellation of ideas worth spreading. Browse all TEDxTalks here »
