Abortion Debate Sparks Online Visual Protest Campaign
An independent news network has launched a photo campaign against government officials’ recent statements against abortion, encouraging concerned citizens to send a message to authorities.
The portal, bianet, invited users to raise their voices against the officials’ comments by submitting a photo of themselves with a sentence encapsulating their feelings. The words are written on paper on some of the photos and on the participants' bodies on others.
The campaign has been rapidly adopted by web users, becoming a widespread online protest movement within a matter of days.
The motto of the campaign is "My decision, my body!"
Male participants have also shown great interest in the campaign, sending photos to the campaign with the words "My wife's decision, my wife's body" or "my daughter's decision, my daughter's body."
The campaign is open to all people who wish to participate.
