Emily: Let's just talk. My name is Emily Lepps [SP]. Hi. Hi. I am a patient advocate of the Cherry Home Women's Center. I talk with women before their abortion procedures. I found out that I am pregnant. Hey I'm pregnant. [sighs] So, I'm pretty early. I'm not ready to have children. Yeah, I'm going to be having an abortion tomorrow morning.
Doctor: What I need you to do is raise up the back of your gown.
Doctor: Have a seat right at the edge of the table.
Emily: I'm OK because I feel completely like, comfortable with the decision. I'm supported by everyone.
Nurse: I'll be by your side the whole time during the procedure. If you need a hand to hold, I'll be here.
Emily: I just want to share my story. To show women that there is such a thing as a positive abortion story. I got a lot of hands. I got a lot of support. Pretty lucky girl.
Nurse: Pass it on.
Emily: Yeah, that's exactly what I'm going to do, pass this on. I'm a lucky girl.
Nurse: You deserve it.
Emily: Everyone deserves it.
Doctor: Emily here comes one. Nice deep breath in. In and out, OK? Here comes a cramp. [Just like before], blow it out.
Emily: I am strong.
Doctor: All right, we're done! Very good! We're going to wipe off and get clean. You did great! You're a little trooper there!
Emily: Oh my God, you guys are my heroes. Yeah. Cool. Feeling good. I'm done. Yay!
Emily: Yup. Let's go!
Nurse: Alright, we got her.
Emily: It is about a month and a half after the procedure now. I feel like I talk to women all the time and they're like "Of course everyone feels bad about this. Of course everyone is going to feel guilty," as if it's a given how people should feel about this, that what they're doing is wrong. I don't feel like a bad person. I don't feel sad. I feel in awe of the fact that I can make a baby. I can make a life. I knew that what I was going to do was right because it was right for me, and no one else. I just want to share my story.There may be small errors in this transcript.
