Emily Letts, a 25 year old abortion counselor, decided to make a video of her own abortion to give young women the message, “you don’t have to feel guilty.”
According to this article, “I Feel Super Great About Having an Abortion” —The Culture of Death Goes Viral, in AlberMohler.com,
She chose a surgical abortion, rather than an abortion by pill, just in order to be able to tell the story. “I could have taken the pill, but I wanted to do the one that women were most afraid of. I wanted to show it wasn’t scary — and that there is such a thing as a positive abortion story,” she recounted.

So Emily Letts set out to make a video of her own abortion in order to create “a positive abortion story” that would show the world that women seeking an abortion should feel no guilt. Over and over again, she suggests that she feels absolutely no guilt about terminating the life within her.
And make no mistake — guilt is her major focus. In her words: “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.”
Actually, what she wants to address is her argument that the guilt women feel in having an abortion is simply imposed upon them by society. “Our society breeds this guilt. We inhale it from all directions,” she asserted. “I didn’t feel bad,” she insists. Her purpose in her video is to eradicate the link between abortion and guilt. “I am thankful that I can share my story and inspire other women to stop the guilt.”
It is clear to me what is happening here. Emily Letts is on a mission to spread a message to women that they should not listen to the warning of God within them—to their God-given warning system, their conscience, which tells them what is right and what is wrong (read Romans 2:15). She says that it is society that “breeds this guilt.” That may be true, but this guilt is true guilt and it is good and healthy. Sometimes we need to listen to society as we need to listen to the voice of God and the voice of our conscience. If we turn this voice off we are really in trouble! Then we are lost. Then all we will have to guide us is our own thoughts and emotions, which we really can’t trust.
The Bible says in 1 Timothy 4:1-2,
But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, 2 by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron…
I’m afraid that Emily has been paying attention to these deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons far too long. She has let them destroy her conscience, and she is on a mission to bring the same destruction on others. Pray this doesn’t happen!
By this story and many others like it, we are made aware that these are the last days, when many are found to be lovers of self (abortion is a selfish act), disobedient to parents, unholy, brutal (murder of the unborn), lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God (from 2 Tim. 3:1-5). Pray constantly for God to save many, and at the same time look for His coming.
In Revelation 22:12 Jesus says,
Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to render to every man according to what he has done.
