As is known Amy Brenneman is a very famous American actress, writer and producer. In the past few days she has explained that she had an abortion and expressed her feelings. Unfortunately the thing almost every women fear the most is abortion. In doubt in order to help women who had abortion is Amy’s goal.
Amy Brenneman wrote that ‘I could never have imagined that a decision I made at age 21 would be such fodder for scrutiny today. I had an abortion. I am simply one of millions of women who have exercised this constitutionally protected right, and according to recent data, I am part of the 95 percent of women who do not regret their choice.’
She continued ‘ This makes sense to me. I am a storyteller by trade, after all. I believe that we connect and learn by the specifics of stories, our own and others’. I am also a believer in taking our private stories public, where the residue of shame — even the shame we were not aware we had — gets evaporated in the light of community and shared experience. We women are especially susceptible to shame for all sorts of reasons: psychological, societal, biological. Tendrils of shame have a tendency to pull us back into the habit of silence, but clearly silence isn’t doing us any good.’
Amy Brenneman enunciated with her own words ‘ Our constitutional right to abortion is under attack, as it has been for years, but more viciously than ever. It is time for me to speak up with the specifics of my own story. Because of this, I have lent my voice, along with eight other women, to an amicus brief for Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, the most significant abortion case before the Supreme Court in 25 years. The case challenges a Texas law that targets abortion providers with onerous and unnecessary restrictions, and would force more than three-quarters of the state’s clinics to close their doors. If this law were allowed to stand, it would leave only 10 clinics remaining in a state with 5.4 million women of reproductive age, many of whom will find themselves in the same position that I was in at age 21.’
It is clearly seen that Amy Brenneman has declared war against the abortion laws for women. From her words, every women has a right to have an abortion and this issues are not concerned the government. Thıs is only about women decision and this decision is not simple matter.
