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 recorded her abortion procedure (Vimeo)

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.

TAMPA, FL — A Florida woman captured an amazing act of road rage and posted it to YouTube. The incident did not end well for the driver.

Redneck Road RageThe YouTube video shows a truck and tailgating a small car. At one point the man driving the truck tries to pass the woman in the car.

“After about a minute and me shaking my head, I pulled out my phone and started recording,” she wrote on YouTube. “I couldn’t move over because there were trucks in the right lane and I sure as heck wasn’t going to speed on a rainy day with the roads being as slick as they were. I was turning left in about a half-mile when this happened.”

He then flashes an offensive gesture at her and loses control of the vehicle. His truck fish-tails, and spins out in the center median.

TheBlaze reported the man in the truck fled the scene, but police were able to use the video to find and charge him.

“Thanks to this video he has been caught and charged. Massive props to the Sheriffs Department and most especially the Highway Patrol who responded to the scene. This moron could have easily killed somebody with his moronic behavior, and my laughing at the end would have been replaced with tears. Needless to say though, I’ve never seen Karma come back so fast.”

HOUSTON, Texas — A construction worker trapped on a fourth-floor balcony is rescued from a blazing fire that engulfed an apartment under construction.

Workers in a building across the street captured the terrifying drama on video. The worker moved to the edge of the balcony as flames engulfed the floor he had been working on. He was finally forced to hang from the ledge and make a dangerous drop to the balcony on the floor below.

Finally, as the walls of the upper floor collapsed in flames around them, firefighters maneuvered a ladder close to the balcony, and the worker jumped to safety.

HONG KONG (CNN) — While their countrymen prepared to attend to the Olympic ideals of “citius, altius, fortius” — faster, higher, stronger — two Russian thrillseekers traveled to China to put at least one of those to the ultimate test by scaling the as yet unfinished Shanghai Tower in the city’s financial district.

The climbers were the same men who made headlines last year when they scaled the Great Pyramid at Giza, Egypt — and later apologized when they were accused of disrespecting the ancient monuments.

They recorded their exploits in Shanghai with forehead-mounted cameras, and the resulting footage, which shows their adrenaline-fueled journey from break-in to summit, is breathtaking.

The video, uploaded to video sharing site Vimeo, shows two masked men wearing hoodies talking urgently in Russian as they scope out the boarded-up construction site, before slipping in. Under the cover of darkness, they make their way up to the roof of the skyscraper.

The climbers, Vadim Makhorov and Vitaly Raskalov, aren’t new to this type of extreme freeclimbing. Their blogs show images of climbers clambering over sites including buildings, mines and dams across Europe, the Middle East and Central and East Asia. Makharov’s blog shows a climber with a camera atop one of the pyramids outside Cairo.

Raskalov told CNN that he was “not scared” when climbing this kind of structure, although it was an “usual situation” for him to undertake this kind of climb.

Peering over the side, the upper floors of the distinctive, 492m Shanghai World Financial Center and the neighboring Jin Mao Tower (421m) can be seen in the video, peeking through low lying clouds.

From their vantage point on top of the unfinished building, Raskalov and Makharov look down on the skyscrapers — the height of the new construction dwarfing its neighbors, which had previously dominated Shanghai’s skyline.

Undaunted, the pair then swing out onto a crane and continue clambering skywards. Cutting back and forth between the daredevils as they ascend the crane, the wide angled cameras show the yawning chasm beneath their sneakered feet — neither man appears to wear any safety gear.

Upon reaching the very top of the crane, one examines his hands, grimy from the long climb, and the pair high-five each other before taking the ultimate Facebook profile pic – one unlikely to ever be replicated.

The 2073 ft (632 m) Shanghai Tower, when completed, will be the second -tallest in the world, after the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.

When the crane jib climbed by the men is factored in, the total height scaled is estimated to be 650m.

Makhorov’s blog says that the pair waited until the Lunar New Year holidays, when construction teams had left the site.

LOS ANGELES — A man wielding a metal rod smashed the windows of four Los Angeles Police Department patrol cars in Hollywood, and one of the attacks was captured by a video journalist who happened to be working nearby.

The man smashed all the windows except the windshields of four LAPD cruisers  near Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue at around 1 p.m. Tuesday, police said.

Raw video of the incident, shot by a KTLA photographer working in the area, shows someone dressed as Darth Vader holding a light saber as the man swings the rod into the window of a car behind him. It shows some people staring as they walk past the car.

The video shows the man pulling a laptop from the car and taking it to a kiosk, where he opens it. The video later shows the man on the ground surrounded by police with someone in a Superman costume standing nearby. He was arrested without incident, police said.
