Woman Films Her Own Abortion To Show World How ‘Cool’ It Is

Emily Letts, a counselor at a New Jersey abortion clinic, decided to film her own abortion and post it on YouTube as a form of positive inspiration to women who are contemplating having the procedure but worry that they might feel guilty afterward.

Letts has no such guilt. She recalls the procedure with fondness. She even describes it as “birth-like,” and said it made her feel good, just like giving birth would.

Letts, whose job involves encouraging women to have abortions, sees her own abortion as an entirely positive experience, and hopes the video will prove to be both instructional and morally persuasive. She feels better about herself every time she watches the video, according to Cosmopolitan.

“Still, every time I watch the video, I love it,” she wrote. “I love how positive it is. I think that there are just no positive abortion stories on video for everyone to see. But mine is.”

The disturbing video has been viewed 10,000 on YouTube. During the three-minute procedure, she repeatedly tells herself how lucky she is. She also hums to herself.

After the abortion is over, she says, “Cool. I feel good.”

Letts writes that having an abortion and giving birth produce similarly happy feelings. Despite aborting her child, she kept the sonogram.

“I remember breathing and humming through it like I was giving birth,” she wrote. “I know that sounds weird, but to me, this was as birth-like as it could be. It will always be a special memory for me. I still have my sonogram, and if my apartment were to catch fire, it would be the first thing I’d grab.”

The response has been overwhelmingly negative. The video was downvoted more than 300 times, and received only 100 likes.

Still, she is hopeful the video will inspire women who have had abortions–or want to have abortions–to let go of their guilt. Letts certainly has none.

She does feel a little bad about getting pregnant in the first place, though.

“I do feel a little irresponsible and embarrassed about not using birth control,” she wrote. “I mean, Emily, wake up! What are you doing? I was going against the advice I give to patients all the time. So I had them put an IUD in after the abortion. I was able to learn and move forward. And I am grateful that I can share my story and inspire other women to stop the guilt.”

ThinkProgress hailed Letts for filming her abortion and putting a positive spin on it.

“For instance, Letts’ story helps demonstrate the fact that abortion isn’t a barbaric procedure that needs additional regulation in order to make it safer,” wrote ThinkProgress.

No words. 
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

It's not hard to see how progressive ideology led to the Nazi death camps, is it?

That is so sick.  I have always said that "abortion is the liberal's sacrifice to the god of convenience".  It is almost like she is making a human sacrifice.......

As a Jew, perhaps I see it with a special clarity.

What in the Hell is wrong with the world today?

“[Euthanasia] is what any State medical service has sooner or later got to face. If you are going to be kept alive in institutions run by and paid for by the State, you must accept the State’s right to economize when necessary …” The Ministry of Fear by Graham Green (New York: Penguin Books [1943] 2005, p. 165).

The answer is contained in your question.

I wonder if she consciously realizes how much of a sociopath she really is.

Will this torment her in her later years?  I pray so.

Probably as much as do other sociopaths, like our President, for example.

I wonder who paid for this marvelous, uplifting experience?  I'm betting the money trail comes back to you and me somehow.

If she does decide to have babies, I wonder how she will explain this video to them?

"Sociopath?"  I don't think so.  I suspect that the words that she would use to describe herself would be: free, liberated, enlightened, progressive, edgy, and fearless.  As warped as it may sound, I think that she believes she is providing some great service to womyn and humanity in toto.  smh

Maybe so, but in truth her video is as good a piece of pro-life propaganda as you are likely to find.  I was thinking of turning it into a video myself, but once I looked at it I realized it speaks for itself.  I could not improve upon it in terms of the power it has to persuade women not to have an abortion.

I hope that you are right.  But I really don't know, in this day and age, how people (women in particular) view something like that.  I just really don't know.

You Tube has to disallow the comments function.  That should speak volumes.
