Leyla talks about her abortion.

Comment is free hosts dozens of discussions on a wide range of subjects, including news, politics and culture, as well as personal perspectives on the way we live now. We wanted to explore different ways of expressing comment and so commissioned spoken word artists and poets to write and perform a bespoke piece with a comment angle. The first in the mini-series is the poet Hollie McNish.
If you’re a spoken word artist or a poet, we’d love to hear from you. Since this is spoken word, we’d like to actually see and hear you, so please take a video of your performance. It doesn’t have to be professional – your words are what are important – but please make sure, if you’re filming with your phone, the sound is okay. Please keep the video to under three minutes.
We will feature your best performances on Comment is Free.
