Abortion businesses want women to believe that abortion is normal, that abortion is easy. And with pro-life states now able to pass laws protecting preborn children, the abortion industry wants more than ever for women to believe there’s no easier way to kill your preborn child than with the abortion pill.
It’s touted as nothing more than bringing down a ‘missed period’ and abortion advocates claim it’s ‘safer than Tylenol.” But Britney Spears’ soon-to-be-released memoir puts a tarnish on that marketing tactic, as she has shared how horrific her experience with abortion drugs was.
News broke last week that Spears’ tell-all memoir includes the claim that Justin Timberlake urged her to undergo an abortion 20 years ago during their relationship, which lasted from 1999-2002. She explained that the pregnancy “was a surprise, but for me, it wasn’t a tragedy.” Justin, however, reportedly “said we weren’t ready to have a baby in our lives.”
Now new details have come to light regarding the abortion, including that Britney took abortion pills, which were first approved for use in the United States by the Clinton administration in 2000.
“It was important that no one find out about the pregnancy or the abortion, which meant doing everything at home,” wrote Spears, who said her family didn’t even know. She called the pain from the abortion pills “excruciating.”
“I kept crying and sobbing until it was all over,” she continued. “It took hours, and I don’t remember how it ended, but I do, twenty years later, remember the pain of it, and the fear.”
As she cried, Justin reportedly “thought maybe music would help” so he played guitar.
Britney isn’t alone.
The pressure Spears felt to have an abortion that she didn’t truly want is something many women face. Sixty-four percent (64%) of women who have undergone an abortion say they felt at least some form of pressure to abort — whether that was from the boyfriend or family members, or was due to educational or financial pressures. This disputes the idea that abortion is about female empowerment and freedom of choice.
Now, in sharing how painful the experience was for her, Spears is acknowledging that the stories shared by countless other women were just as horrible as the women have said. Live Action’s “I Saw My Baby” campaign shared some of these stories.
Elizabeth G.’s abortion pill experience is documented in the Attorney General of Indiana’s response to a lawsuit filed by Whole Woman’s Health Alliance, an abortion chain. After taking the second drug in the abortion pill regimen, Elizabeth began to bleed heavily.
“There was so much pain and blood I thought I might die,” she said. Finally, she passed the gestational sac: It was transparent yellow, about the size and shape of a tennis ball. When I picked it up, I could see the baby inside. He looked like a little gummy bear. I sat and held him and cried.”
Elizabeth later suffered from anorexia, abusive relationships, and post-traumatic stress disorder, which a counselor traced directly to the abortion.
Likewise, Leslie W. took the abortion pill, suffered severe pain, and screamed for hours, alone. “My experience was incredibly scary and nothing like a normal period,” she said. “The pain I felt was much more similar to labor contractions than normal cramps. I remember sitting on the toilet discharging blood while also vomiting and shaking all over.”
Tami M. said “the pain and the urge to push were so intense.” After she passed “what looked like a fully-formed, intact 14-week old fetus covered in blood,” she said, “I scooped my baby out of the toilet. I sat on the floor and held him and cried.”
Other women have said the pain from the abortion pill was “the worst pain I have ever felt in my life,” and “It wasn’t cramps. It wasn’t contractions. I was in so much pain.”
Women have also spoken of the trauma they endured from the abortion pill, saying, “Nothing could have ever prepared me for seeing my dead baby,” “I passed a whole baby in a sac. I will never forget that image,” and “No one prepared me for this … this was not some random clot, it was my baby and he was in the toilet.”
Reddit user brazen177 shared photos of her 10-week baby aborted by pill:
Another woman explained, “This [is] probably the most traumatic thing I have ever seen or been through in my life … and this is the single greatest regret of my entire 37 years on this earth. I will never forget what I saw and I still cry about it to this day.”
And another said:
I could see where the head and eyes had already started to form, that image is burned into my brain for the rest of my life. … Saying that experience ruined me would be an understatement. Everything in my life changed and I didn’t even know myself anymore. I had to deal with anxiety and depression and suicidal thoughts after I made this decision. … It was and will always be the biggest regret of my life.
Spears, likewise said, the abortion she had was “one of the most agonizing things I have ever experienced in my life.”
The abortion pill is risky
On September 10, 2001, news broke that a woman in Canada had died from a serious infection caused by the abortion pill: Clositridium sordellii. Her death should have put the abortion pill and those selling and dispensing it under scrutiny. But the next day was September 11, 2001, and the attack on the United States meant the woman’s abortion pill related death was no longer a top headline.
Beverly Winikoff, founder of Gynuity Health Projects — the sponsor of controversial abortion pill clinical trials on girls as young as 10 — credited 9/11 with saving the abortion pill.
The abortion pill has been found to be four times more dangerous for women than a first trimester surgical procedure and research has shown that about six percent (6%) of women who took the abortion pill required a visit to urgent care or the ER.
The abortion pill has now killed nearly six million preborn humans in the U.S., and in 2020, the abortion pill accounted from 53% of the nation’s abortions. With the proliferation of unregulated online virtual abortion businesses, abortion pill numbers are likely to increase further.
