Country singer Amanda Shires on why abortion is part of women's health care: 'We're talking about letting women die'

In 2020, country singer Amanda Shires penned an essay for Rolling Stone in which she revealed that she had an abortion — a "10 minute" procedure that came with frustrating and "invasive" questions.

Despite the many questions as to why she was undergoing the procedure — which she described as having "cells removed" despite trolls labeling her a "baby killer" — Shires wrote at the time, "The reasons that I chose to have an abortion are personal, and they are mine."
