Skip to comments.I Still Want to See an Abortion Video
Posted on 05/13/2014 1:42:12 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
In all the hubbub about Emily Lettss abortion video, nobody seems to have pointed out the obvious: It doesnt show an abortion.
Letts, a 25-year-old abortion counselor from New Jersey, filmed herself terminating a pregnancy to prove that a woman can have a positive abortion experience. In the article that she wrote for Cosmopolitan and in follow-up interviews, Letts says that she wants to help stop the stigma of the abortion procedure.
We talk about abortion so much and yet no one really knows what it actually looks like, Letts said.
Well, I watched the abortion video and I can tell you, I still dont know what abortion looks like.
Emily, if youre going to make an abortion video, make an abortion video. When I pressed play, I was, admittedly, nervous about what I would see. I watched half of the video with one eye open, in case I had to close both to shield myself from any graphic images.
But after the video ended, I couldnt help but say to myself, Thats it? The entire procedure is filmed from the waist up and all the viewer can see is Emilys smiling face. (Yes, smiling.) The rest is just Emily talking to the camera.
In an era when one can readily find peoples videos of their colonoscopies and schoolchildren are required to watch the Miracle of Birth, in which a baby is filmed actually exiting a womans body, one would think that a widely discussed abortion video would actually show an abortion.
If there were no title to the video and no sound, you could easily have concluded Letts was getting a bee sting removed from a very unfortunate area. For all of her talk about sharing her story and removing the stigma, Letts managed to whitewash the issue, as the Left is so good at doing, and produce a PG-rated, three-minute commercial for herself.
Toward the end of the video, Letts films herself speaking about the abortion a month later. She says that she is in awe of the fact that she can create a life. Emily, if you admit that the fetus in your womb was a life and you caused that fetus to cease to exist, then are you not ending a life/killing someone? (Kaboom! Youve been lawyered.)
As Breitbart.com pointed out, Lettss admission that the abortion was right for me and no-one else is a Freudian slip. Exactly, no one else. As an abortion counselor, she is around abortions constantly, so of course she is desensitized to it and can leave the clinic without feeling a shred of guilt.
Of course filming someone so desensitized to the whole process is going to create a positive video. Letts says that what she really wanted to address in my video is guilt. She states that she does not feel guilty about her decision and that therefore other women shouldnt pressure themselves to feel bad about it either. She seems to forget that not all women are abortion counselors. When these women feel guilty, that is their natural reaction, not the bubbly excitement that Letts exudes.
Letts has admitted that she was not on any form of birth control and the man was never involved in the decision-making process. She has since stated, in an interview with HuffPost Live that she knew she was going to be called a whore for making the video.
Im not going to call you a whore, Emily, but I may call you profoundly lazy and irresponsible. Perhaps a more interesting video would have been you walking the two blocks to your local CVS and picking up a pack of condoms.

> she wants to help stop the stigma of the abortion procedure.
It’s murder of a baby. It should be the biggest stigma ever.
>> Letts, a 25-year-old abortion counselor from New Jersey, filmed herself terminating a pregnancy to prove that a woman can have a positive abortion experience.
It’s not about YOU.
Did the slut get herself knocked up on purpose so she could murder a baby? What was Daddy’s opinion of her sucking out his baby’s life?
If people want to see an abortion look at “Silent Scream”
Better yet, show her smiling face on split screen WITH the live sonogram of the screaming fetus as it is happening.
Then show it to her. [with a split screen of her face while watching it]
I am sure she can volunteer to get knocked up again and have another go at it.
Let’s watch her progress over the years too... I know someone who had an abortion and it has tormented her for her entire life.
Didn’t the Nazi’s compose rather graphic films of their ‘solutions’?
Nothing new for the left.
I’m not sure I do.
Blonde airhead mugging for the camera. She’s wearing a bathrobe as opposed to a surgical gown?
I still say it’s faked.
What kind of anesthesia was she given? Shouldn’t that have at least made her groggy? Drowsy? Where is the IV in this “video”?
When I had to undergo a D&C, I was in an operating room, in a hospital gown, with an IV in my arm. During the procedure itself, I was out.
I think Emily thinks we’re stupid.
Sarah Silverman made a joke of that very claim in her stand-up routine a few years ago. She may still be using it.
Just because she feels no guilt now, it does not mean that she will NEVER experience guilt about what she has done. Time and new experience has away of changing people, not to mention what a visit by the Holy Spirit might do. Paul was a proud and unrepentant persecutor of Christians at the time Stephen was stoned to death. God sometimes works in very mysterious ways.
If she worked as an abortion counselor why didn’t she ask any of the women (that she referred) if they would like to do the video. She could have capture several on film if it’s such a wonderful experience.
This description reminds me of the "alien autopsy" video which shows...nothing.
