At a pro-abortion rally in front of the Supreme Court on Tuesday, House Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) boasted of her own abortion, a revelation the crowd gleefully cheered and applauded. 

At the dais with a bullhorn, Rep. Speier, a strong supporter of Planned Parenthood, said, "Today, I'm here to say you know me. I am one of the one-in-four women in this country who have had an abortion."

“We are not strangers,” she said. “We are wives, we are mothers, we are sisters, and we will not be stigmatized!”

Also, on Twitter, Speier wrote, "Today, I shared my story of my 2nd trimester abortion, a painful procedure that became necessary after the fetus I was carrying moved from my uterus to my vagina. I am not ashamed. Neither should anyone else be. Those who treat women like chattel should be ashamed. #StopTheBans"

According to the CDC and the Guttmacher Institute, there were more than 50 million abortions in the United States between 1973 and 2015. 

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), "On average, 56 million abortions occurred worldwide each year in 2010–2014. This is an increase from 50 million annually in 1990–1994, resulting primarily from population growth." (Emphasis added.)  That equals, on average, 153,424 abortions worldwide every day.
