I'm not here to go on an "abortion is right!" or "abortion is wrong!" tangent because that's a you-make-up-your-own-mind kind of thing. But I am here to say that it is a very personal decision, and I respect women enough for us to decide what is best for our *own* lives.The woman in this video, named Emily, does just that: decides what's best for her life. But the twist here is that she bravely shares that decision with the world.
Trigger warning: There is non-graphic footage of an abortion procedure here. For most, it should be OK to watch, but some may have a higher sensitivity to it. Use your best judgment.[vimeo_embed //player.vimeo.com/video/84797427?byline=0&color=ffffff expand=1]
From Emily: "This is my story. This is ONLY my story. I do not pretend that it is anything more or anything less. I do not speak for everyone on this sensitive subject and I respect everyone's opinions as long as they do not force them onto others."
I think that is nicely put, and I hope it's something we can all respect, too.
