Showing just how ill prepared her mentality and reasoning was behind the justification to go through with an abortion, the woman who recorded herself during the procedure went on a truly bizarre rant during a recent interview. Mentioning several bodily functions, and even what she had for breakfast, the abortion advocate gave a painstakingly long response that fell noticeably short when confronted with a pro-life question.
Emily Letts, 25, has recently gone viral after posting a video in which she recorded her abortion procedure. Effectively ending the life of her unborn child, the woman was heard calling those who carried out her abortion, “heroes,” and said, “yeah, cool,” after the deed was done.
Surprisingly, and perhaps the most ironic aspect of the film was when Letts reflected on her experience where she marveled the fact that her body was able to create human life. Although she acknowledges the life inside of her was human, she still went through with terminating that life as it was, “her right,” to do so.
Since that time, Letts seems to have found herself in the midst of her 15-minute spotlight and was even more recently asked to participate in a BBC interview. Appearing on Newsbeat via skype, Letts was bombarded with questions from her host.
The head of a UK based pro-life charity called Life, Anne Scanlan, hit perhaps the hardest and left Letts babbling through an unintelligible rant that proved she had no right going through with the abortion. The host played a clip where Scanlan said, “This is essentially an abortion promotional video by an abortion counselor who tries to trivialize the procedure. Abortion ends the life of an unborn child, and we should never take it lightly. It is irresponsible to try to portray abortion in such a trivial manner.”
Asked how she would respond to such an assertion, Letts gave her best attempt, starting by saying that, “a woman has her own individual, unique experience with her own body. I think that, like, abortion is a personal matter.”
The uncomfortable nature of the question set in as Letts is seen squirming in her chair as she clearly has no valid response. Making it up as she went along however, she continued by noting, “Like, no one can tell me how to feel about my abortion. I felt how I felt, and that was not influenced by anyone else except for how I grew up, how I you know went to college, how I live my day, how like I ate a salad for breakfast. How I, like – it’s me. Like, this is me.”
Just about when she mentioned her salad is when Letts really went off the deep end.
She next relayed, “Like, I breathe. I sneeze. I fart. I poop. I’m a human being. You know, that’s all that I am. And so like, I’m sharing my story.”
Now taking to the defense knowing that she legitimately had no justification for her actions she rambled on conveying, “Who are you to say you have to feel this way about a very intimate experience? Who are you say to say that like I am trivializing something? No, no. It’s my life. I get to do what I want to do with my life. And I’m having the gall, I guess the audacity to say, like, I want to share this with the rest of the world.”
The truth of the matter is this – if you have no justifiable reason as to why you are taking a human life, no matter the age, then you are not entitled to do so. What do you guys think – does this show Letts unpreparedness for an interview or that she really doesn’t have a viable justification for abortion? Let us know in the comments below.
