It is 2014 and times have changed. So how should we feel when a woman videotapes her abortion procedure in order to encourage other women to not feel guilty when they themselves undergo an abortion? 

    When Emily Letts got pregnant, she knew she was unprepared to care for a child, so she had an abortion. Then she decided to film it. Letts, 25, is an abortion counselor at Cherry Hill Women's Center in New Jersey, and thats the place she had the procedure done. The following video focuses on her face only but shows her breathing and humming through the process. The doctor cannot been seen in the video. Emily entered the video in the "Abortion Care Network's Stigma Busting" video competition and she won. Her video went viral. 

    I personally, cannot relate to Emily or any other woman who has experienced an abortion and I do think its personal choice. The question is, should you automatically feel bad about what you've done, and who convinced you to feel that way? 

    Emily explains why she decided to share her experience so publicly. Watch and share your thoughts below.
