The author of the column describes her experience.
One in four American women has had an abortion. I’m one of them, though like many I never said so publicly. No time like the increasingly scary present to change that. My @nytimes piece tomorrow:https://t.co/HbPJf9b8it

some reactions on Twitter:
Thank you. One in four American women has had an abortion.
And the rest of us have, at some point, peed on a stick in a bathroom and bargained with God.

Thank you for writing this. Each one of us knows someone who has had an abortion. We just may not know who they are because they haven't told us. Yet.
