According to the Daily Mail, a group of women recently shared their abortion stories through the secret sharing app called Whisper and said they experienced relatively little guilt regarding their decision to kill their baby.
In fact, apparently one lady had an abortion because she wanted to go out to a nightclub later that day. The woman, who remained anonymous, said, “I had an abortion a week ago. I don’t feel the slightest bit of guilt, I even went out to a club on the same day.”
Another woman added, “I’ve had 5 abortions because I love getting pregnant but just not ready for kids.”
This sentiment is similar to that of some pro-abortion advocates who believe abortion can be a positive experience. For example, in 2014, a group called Exhale celebrated abortion and said that it improves a woman’s physical and emotional health. Additionally, they encouraged post-abortive women to focus on “well-being, connectedness and compassion” because abortion can be a “healing and empowering experience”. The truth is this is literally impossible since abortion destroys another human being and wounds countless families.
Ultimately these “positive” abortion stories are far and few in between because statistics show that the majority of women regret abortion. As LifeNews previously reported, after abortion over 65% of women suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and post abortive women are six-times more likely to commit suicide than women who have given birth. Also, many women describe their abortion experience as ‘a nightmare,’ with 60% reporting that it felt like ’Part of me died.’
In 2013, Virtue Media shared how women really feel about abortion after another group tried to put a happy face on the devastating procedure. One woman named Vanessa described her abortion experience like this: “I felt very pressured to have an abortion by everyone around me. After the abortion, I felt no sense of relief. You can forgive yourself, but you can never forget.”

Then another woman added that experiencing abortion was just as traumatic as rape. She said, “I had experienced a rape at a very young age, and I compared it very much to rape – very traumatic,” she said, adding that the sadness and regret “compounds because of other choices you make as a result of the pain and the suffering that you’re going through.”
Some women even went so far to express the happiness at their decision, with one woman adding: ‘I’ve had 5 abortions and I don’t feel bad or sad about any of them I was kinda happy.’ Similarly, another woman compared her own sensations of relief and happiness to other people’s darker experience, writing: ‘I actually find it strange how depressed people get after having an abortion. I don’t regret mine one bit, let alone feel depressed about it.’
Some women spoke about their experience of being judged or ‘shamed’ by people who knew of the procedure.
One talked about being ‘pro choice’: ‘I had an abortion and not once have I felt bad about it. I don’t feel insensitive saying that either, it was my choice.’ Another talked about her own experience and decision to rise above certain situations, explaining: ‘I don’t regret my abortion and it’s funny when people try to shame me. Luckily laughing and walking away is the best reaction you can give them.’
One pregnant woman confessed that she had not yet had her procedure, but was indeed ‘excited’ to be rid of her debilitating symptoms: ‘I don’t want to to say it, but I can’t deny it. I’m excited to have my abortion. Goodbye morning sickness!’
