MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - A group of University of Montana students are staging a play based on women’s experiences undergoing abortions in hopes of fighting the stigma connected to the procedure.

The Missoulian reports (https://bit.ly/1O5jziM ) that the group is performing “Out of Silence” for free at the Roxy Theater on Thursday.

The play shows six vignettes of real abortion stories, including the depiction of a mother and daughter, a couple, a woman and a stranger and supportive friends.

The play focuses on the vitriol women face for having abortions and the decision that go into them.

UM officials say the play is part of the “1 in 3 Campaign,” a project of Advocates for Youth aimed at starting a new conversation about abortion. Data shows that one in three women will have an abortion.
