Abortions that are Twitter-friendly


If you thought social connectivity had gone too far when churches starting having Twitter-friendly worship services, you’ll almost certainly find this story really reprehensible:

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.”

Sarah Pulliam Bailey has more on the media coverage of this story at GetReligion. If you need me, I’ll be bent over the toilet.
