New Website Shows Women What An Abortion Is Like
This is My Abortion gives women an idea of what they might experience.
With a URL like “www.thisismyabortion.com,” you’d think it would be pretty obvious what’s there. But while jarring images of dead fetuses flood most anti-choice groups’ propaganda, the pictures you see on This Is My Abortion aren’t what you might expect at all. There are no horrifying images. No dank, dark, scary rooms with creepy doctors. In fact, if anything, the images in This Is My Abortion are that of a straight-forward medical procedure (see images below).
And that’s exactly what the site’s photographer intended.
Started by an anonymous woman living in the U.S., who goes by the pseudonym “Jane,” This Is My Abortion shows Jane’s actual abortion in process. Fed up with “the sensationalist images propagated by the religious and political right on this matter,” Jane said she wanted to “demystify” what an abortion is really like.
