Conflict seems to arise when two parties disagree on something as simple as who the best sports team is or the color of a cup at a popular coffee shop. People will continue to disagree on certain matters without taking others’ opinions into account. The same can be said when it comes to the topic of abortion. There are those who agree with abortion (those who are pro-choice) and those who disagree with abortion and find it equal to murder (those who are pro-life). In any case, when it comes to both parties abortion is still known as a shameful act. When a woman decides to have an abortion, many may believe that she is committing murder and others may believe that she does not carry empathy after said abortion. In all reality, having an abortion is not an easy task nor is it one that is devoid of emotion. It is a decision that will alter a woman’s life forever and is quite an emotional process for the woman end even family involved. Because it is such a delicate topic and because it is a woman’s decision to have an abortion, they should not feel ashamed. The article, “I Had an Abortion”: A Feminist Analysis of the Abortion Debate by: Elizabeth Kuechenmeister backs this idea up by explaining the importance of a tee shirt that contains the statement “I Had an Abortion” across the top. With the help of dramatistic/narrative criticism (or D/N for short), this shirt allows women to become empowered and express the fact that they had an abortion and should not be ashamed.
