In 1972, a year before Roe v. Wade, Ms. Magazine made waves by publishing a petition containing the names of 53 prominent American women who admitted to having had abortions. The act was seen as a brave and galvanizing way to erase the stigma around abortion and push the agenda for its further legalization.

41 years later, New York magazine ran a cover story along remarkably similar lines. Despite the passage of decades, it seems that, on some level, not much has changed.
