There’s a viral video out there that doesn’t involve Charlie biting his brother’s finger, Ok Go’s Rube Goldberg project, or a man on a horse. No, this one is much more serious. Angie Jackson’s video of having an abortion (right) has received more than 140,000 hits since she posted it a few weeks ago.
At four weeks pregnant, Jackson said in the video that Planned Parenthood helped her obtain her RU-486 abortion. “I want people to know that it’s out there, that if you need this, there’s non-surgical options available especially in the earliest stage of pregnancy,” she said. “Cramps are getting a bit more persistent,” Jackson tweeted. “Definitely bleeding now.”
