A conversation between Meghan Markle, Gloria Steinem, and journalist Jessica Yellin about the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade was published today in Vogue. In it, the women discuss what this legislation means for reproductive rights and people who can become pregnant.

Steinem, in the article, shares a story she’s told before: “I was in London, not this country, when I needed an abortion and was lucky to find a physician in the equivalent of the Yellow Pages, who said that if I promised him two things—one, that I would never tell anyone his name and two, that I would do what I wish to do with my life—he would send me to a woman doctor who would do the abortion.”
