Hashtag draws abortion rights and anti-abortion comments Live

The hashtag #ShoutYourAbortion has been trending on Twitter for at least two days, as abortion rights supporters share their tweets about their abortions, and anti-abortion people respond. 

The hashtag is trending as politicians in the U.S. House passed legislation to de-fund Planned Parenthood. Next week, the federal budget year ends, and the issue of Planned Parenthood funding has become a sticking point in passing a bill that would allow government agencies to continue operating.

Here's what local Twitter users are saying on the hashtag:

Lindy West is one of the originators of the hashtag.
