    Woman twitters her abortion

    Woman twitters her abortion via RU486.

    Angie Jackson live-tweets her abortion to 'demystify' procedure, receives death threats


    Okay so what do people think of this? Support it? Think she's nuts?

    When I saw the headline, I was appalled. I thought, "People are twittering abortions?" One of the reasons she said she did it was to demystify the process. You know, that reason, I understand, and I kind of support what she did. I could see that being something that would help a woman decide whether she could take that pill.

    Twittering while going through it? No, I don't agree with that. It's attention seeking and given the predictably responses and threats, not a very smart thing to do for her safety or that of her family.

    Making a blog entry or posting about it somewhere on the internet in order to demystify it, great, but I don't think that was the foremost thought in her mind.

    I'm 50/50 on this one.

    I don't agree with her "sensationalizing" her abortion experience even though her intensions might have been genuinely noble and honest. But I think it is her right to have an abortion is she (and her significant other) both agree it is in their best interest. That said, I also think she could have carried the baby to term and given it up for adoption, but that is her choice.

    She doesn't need anybody to "agree" with her, it is her choice.

    it's her right to abort, and her right to twitter, but that doesn't mean her intentions were anywhere near noble. what's next, twittering a suicide?
    revolting, imo.
