*Trigger Warning: Sexual Assault*This week I talked to cabaret artist Jacinta about her personal experience with abortion and the importance of free, legal and safe treatment. An important conversation I'm grateful for about a topic that is so important to discuss. Especially as it still holds a lot of shame and guilt which is placed on us by society, that simply shouldn't be there. We also discussed her experience with sexual assault, how the "Me Too" - movement helped her in recognising and coming to terms with her experience and the importance of consent. BPAS is the UK's leading abortion care charity - specialists in safe, confidential, high-quality abortion treatment for more than 50 years:https://www.bpas.org/abortion-care/As always, if you have any questions, wonderings or suggestions, you can find me here:Twitter: @MasterbatorsPod INSTA: @MasterbatorsPodcast 📧: masterbatorspodcast[at]gmail.com
