An Abortion Video So Personal It Might Be Hard To Believe She Shared It With You

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.

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.
