Widespread revulsion in response to a video in which a woman celebrates her abortion by putting the video on YouTube is very apropos given that its star, Emily Letts, is an actress whose most recent movie was a horror flick centered around the slaughter of children.
Letts’ story went viral today after she penned a Cosmopolitan piece describing her decision to film her abortion and post it on YouTube as an “inspiration” for other women who are scared or guilty about terminating their pregnancy.
However, the most common reaction to the clip was abject disgust given that in the video Letts virtually celebrates killing her baby, smiling and humming throughout the procedure while describing herself as “lucky,” enjoying what she later described as “a special memory for me”.
At the end of the abortion, Letts blithely exclaims “Yay!….Cool. I feel good,” before explaining how she kept a sonogram of the baby as a memento.
Letts’ treatment of the abortion, which at the very least should be undertaken in a somber and regretful manner, as some kind of positive achievement prompted widespread denunciation.
Many will find it ironic – or just plain sick – that Letts is an actress who most recently played a role in a late night horror flick called Hallows’ Eve, a low budget “slasher” movie in which teenagers are violently murdered by a vengeful killer.
She also took a role in a 2010 movie called Clap on Clap Off about a girl who “discovers that she has gonorrhea in her throat”. In a clip from the film, Letts states, “the best way to get over someone is to get under someone else”.
The fact that Letts is an actress based in Philadelphia was also highlighted by PhillyMag.com.
Given that she’s an actress from Philly, some will even question the legitimacy of Letts’ story. Was she put up to the publicity stunt by someone else or was the entire performance entirely of her own making?
Whatever the case, her story has attracted widespread condemnation even from many on the left, who are equally disgusted at the practice of abortion being celebrated even if they support a woman’s right to choose.
A Huffington Post poll is currently running 60-40 in favor of a majority who think that Letts’ PR stunt was “delusional” and that “an abortion is never a ‘positive experience”.
