VIDEO: Atheist talks about her abortion

Antitheist Angie talks about having a chemical abortion. I'm posting this for your reaction:

The thing why this doesn't work as well as "I regret my abortion" videos is that the latter show things can go wrong with abortion.

It suggests the service is defective.

Sure, some people go through abortion and nothing happens.

What if that person isn't you?

We ban and restrict the use of certain products on the same premise.

Take baby walkers. Or lawn darts. Or trans fats.

These things are banned because everyone suffered because of them.

But because a fraction suffered.

What the "I regret my abortion" theme suggests is that abortion is not this harmless, inconsequential operation. For millions of women, it has horrible, life-altering affects, even on women who agreed with it.

I've had a miscarriage at about 3 weeks. It wasn't horrible. I felt some mourning.

But there is something different about being the cause of your child's death. Your soul knows that. You can't run away from it. The reasons behind it also affect one's unconscious reaction. She says that she was afraid of pregnancy risks.

Do you know how rare it is to die of pregnancy?

People often think that in a "it's-you-or-me" scenario, one's conscience will never bother them. That's not necessarily the case.
