CHERRY HILL, N.J. – A counselor at a women’s health clinic not only filmed her abortion, she shared it with the world and said she did it to support other women.
Emily Letts, 25, found out she was a few weeks pregnant and said she knew she wasn’t ready to take care of a child. That’s when she decided to have the procedure done at the Cherry Hill Women’s Shelter in New Jersey, where she worked as a patient advocate.
“I just want to share my story to show women that there is such thing as a positive abortion story,” Letts told WPIX-TV.
The video does not seem graphic and Letts is fairly relaxed during the whole procedure that lasted about 5 minutes.
Letts reportedly received a mix of hateful and supportive comments after posting the video on social media.
“Our society breed this guilty. We inhale it from all directions,” she said in a column published in Cosmopolitan magazine. “Just so much blind hatred without knowing who I am or what I’m about.”
Despite the negative comments, Letts said she’s able to move forward and hopes her story will inspire women to stop feeling guilt.
