NEW: Join the Youth Abortion Support Collective (YouthASC), a national network of young people committed to supporting young people who need abortion care and connecting each other with information and resources
Abortion Out Loud, formerly the 1 in 3 Campaign, harnesses the power of storytelling, grassroots organizing, leadership development, and policy advocacy to end abortion stigma and strengthen support for young people's access to abortion. Activists leading the Abortion Out Loud project in their community host abortion speakouts, lead public education campaigns, and work with campus and local officials to strengthen young people's access to abortion services.
Read and share abortion stories
Abortion Out Loud began as the 1 in 3 Campaign, a storytelling campaign to which over 1500 people have contributed their abortion stories. We are honored to continue to share stories and to connect storytellers with policy makers who are making decisions about abortion access.

The legacy of the 1 in 3 Campaign
The 1 in 3 Campaign launched in 2012 with just a handful of stories from staff and activists. Over the next 7 years it grew to include 1500 stories, with a reach of thousands of activists on hundreds of college campuses and in communities.

Factsheet: Abortion and Young People
Young people have the right to protect their health and plan their futures. That includes decisions about pregnancy and parenting. Yet young people face many barriers to reproductive health care, including inadequate sex education and lack of access to contraception. When it comes to abortion care, we live in an increasingly hostile climate, with access to abortion services shrinking for many.
