An Abortion Counselor Films Her Abortion to Show Others It’s Not Scary

Emily Letts, an abortion counselor, decided to film her own abortion “to show it wasn’t scary—and that there is such a thing as a positive abortion story.” She added that her “hope is that someone somewhere will see this and it will provide some guidance, strength, support, or whatever else they need in that moment. I want to tell that person that you are not alone. Having an abortion does not make you a bad person, a bad woman, a bad mother. Having an abortion does not make you guilty. It is simply one step in your reproductive story. You are not alone. I am here for you. We are all here for you.”
