SEE IT: New Jersey abortion counselor films her own procedure for online film 

Emily Letts, 25, a counselor for the Cherry Hill Women's Center decided she wanted to share a positive message when she became pregnant and had an abortion in November. She said she did not feel guilt for getting the procedure because it was the right decision for her. But pro-life groups have condemned her video for not focusing enough attention on her unborn child.

An abortion counselor wanted to tell a positive abortion story by filming her own procedure.

Emily Letts, 25, a patient advocate at the Cherry Hill Women's Center in Cherry Hill, N.J., produced an online film of her abortion in November.

She wrote in an essay for Cosmopolitan that she wanted to discuss the feelings women who get the procedure feel — especially the guilt.

"I know there are women who feel great remorse. I have seen the tears. Grieving is an important part of a woman's process, but what I really wanted to address in my video is guilt," she wrote. "Our society breeds this guilt. We inhale it from all directions. Even women who come to the clinic completely solid in their decision to have an abortion say they feel guilty for not feeling guilty. Even though they know 110% that this is the best decision for them, they pressure themselves to feel bad about it."

The video shows Emily the night before the procedure as she informs the audience she is pregnant but not ready to have children.

"I feel lucky. I'm completely comfortable with the decision. I feel supported by everyone," she says. "I just want to share my story to show women there is such a thing as a positive abortion story."

The former actress said she became a counselor as a way to help women and support them after years of feeling competitive with other women because of her former profession.

But Letts, who did not return messages seeking comment, became pregnant in November because she said she didn't use birth control.

"Once I caught my breath, I knew immediately I was going to have an abortion," she wrote. "I knew I wasn't ready to take care of a child. The guy wasn't involved in my decision."

She opted to undergo a surgical abortion with local anesthesia, meaning she would be awake the entire time. The first trimester operation takes three to five minutes and she decided to film it to show an abortion from the woman's experience.

The video shows her conscious, holding someone's hand as she hums at the end of the procedure.

"You did great, you're a trooper there," the doctor remarked.

"You guys are my heroes," replied the relieved Letts.

I chose not to post the video . You can see her expressions , nothing graphic if you click the link . I disagree with posting her abortion on facebook .

I knew she would be white.
I don't know why someone would want to do this other than prove a point.

I don't think there should be legislation against abortion but I don't see it as a cause of celebration either.

I'm pro choice, but I still think these decisions should be private.

attention-whoring serves no purpose.

Everyone isn't overly dramatic about an abortion.....their are some completely cool people that make a conscious decision that regret nothing.....feel no shame.....and go for a Burrito bowl afterwards......

Hmm, Facebook? Eh, I thought it would have been better at a more educational site or a health conscious one. And about the pro-life group, umm they can have a seat as they have problem with any abortion. Many of the those who are against abortion are also against many of the programs geared at helping take care of the infant after birth.

Thats why I have no problem with this. Why should we feel bad for making a decision that only affects us? Why should their be an element of shame? People love to shame women for their reproductive decisions.
