Simone De Beauvoir, French Feminist, Who Wrote In 1971 "the Manifesto Of The 343"

Simone de Beauvoir (French writer, intellectual, existentialist philosopher, political activist, feminist and social theorist) wrote for a French magazine in 1971 « The Manifesto of the 343 » Here is the translation of the intro : « One million women in France have an abortion every year. Condemned to secrecy, they have them in dangerous conditions when this procedure, performed under medical supervision, is one of the simplest. These women are veiled in silence. I declare that I am one of them. I have had an abortion. Just as we demand free access to birth control, we demand the freedom to have an abortion. » By writing this text, these women exposing themselves to criminal prosecution (in France, you could be put in jail for having or helping for an abortion). Contraceptives became free in 1974 and abortion became legal in 1975. Thanks to her.

Is there no support for the women in USA concerning the new laws that force our dangerous compliance? Please reply and tell me you care for this matter enough to keep the dialog open and honest. The more we discuss these subjects, the more we find solutions. Thank you for your support of women in America.
