    Storytell Your Abortion!

    Hey, alright! A night of comics talking about their abortions!


    Because abortion is normal, legal, and can be a positive thing in a person’s life.

    The best way to end the stigma and shame regarding the subject of abortion is to talk about it. So let’s do this, let’s tell our abortion stories.

    Our brave, amazing, comedians telling their true abortion experiences are:

    Amber Clenaghen Wendy Weiss Alayna Becker Julia Ramos Rochelle Cote

    With your host, me, Mary Numair!

    Doors are at 7:00 and the show will start at 8:00. Come join us for a night of talking about the perfectly normal topic of abortion.

    This event is made possible through Shout Your Abortion . SYA is a beautifully radical campaign-turned-organization dedicated to normalizing the topic of abortion. Good things happen because of abortion and it’s more than okay to embrace that. SYA is dedicated to creating places and spaces that change the cultural conversation of abortion.
