Emily Letts, an abortion counselor is causing an outraged after she posted a video of her getting an abortion, she said she didn’t felt like a bad person, which is clearly after she says ‘I’m done. Yay!’ after the procedure was done.
25-year-old Emily E. Letts the daughter of John and Daryl Ann Letts from Climax, MI is an abortion counselor at Cherry Hills Women’s Center in New Jersey and former actress from Philly known for Hallows’ Eve (2013), Hoagie (2012) and Clap on Clap Off (2010) said that in November when she found she was pregnant she also knew she wasn’t ready to have a child.
I found out I was pregnant in November. I had been working at the clinic for about a year. It was my first pregnancy, and, full disclosure, I hadn’t been using any kind of birth control, which is crazy, I know. I’m a sex educator, and I love talking about birth control. Before this experience, hormonal birth control scared me because of complications I’d heard about from friends — gaining weight, depression, etc. So I tracked my ovulation cycle, and I didn’t have any long-term partners. I thought I was OK. But, you know, things happen. I wound up pregnant.
Working at an abortion clinic, you always think you’re pregnant. After hearing day in and day out stories from women not knowing they’re pregnant until 20 weeks or still getting their periods while pregnant, I take pregnancy tests all the time
Letts said that at first she was just going to write about the procedure, but then her administrator talked her into filming it, the video would be focus on her experience which is why Emily explained the camera only showed her from the waist up and focusing on her face.
She said she decided to filmed and showed it to the world to show that it wasn’t scary, and it didn’t hurt, seriously???
As expected her decision was not well received, she has been bombarded with death threats, and many other things.
“You’re a Nazi,” “You deserve to die,” “You killed your baby.”
Emily said, she knew she was going to get those kinds of things and a lot worse, but she didn’t care any less.
Just so much blind hatred without knowing who I am or what I’m about.
Still, every time I watch the video, I love it. 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.
I know there are women who feel great remorse. I have seen the tears. Grieving is an important part of a woman’s process, but what I really wanted to address in my video is guilt.
‘I don’t feel like a bad person. I don’t feel sad,’ she explains, pointing out that many of the patients at her clinic assume that everyone feels guilty after having an abortion.
‘I knew that what I was going to do was right – it was right for me and for no one else
