Magazine Coaches Women on How to ‘Relax’ During an Abortion

Article blatantly suggests coloring or playing Beyoncé songs in order to feel 'empowered' while undergoing the 'procedure' — unbelievable

Pro-choice advocates typically have a confusing message: They assert that an abortion is simply a “procedure” and no big deal at all — while at the same time offering resources to deal with the feelings women may have before, during, and after an abortion.

People don’t often have complicated feelings before, during and after a dental cleaning or the removal of stitches — so which is it?

SELF magazine takes that baffling and illogical stance in a recent article titled, “15 Ways to Mentally and Physically Prepare for Your Abortion Procedure.”

The article suggests that abortion is normal and even ho-hum, stating, “Abortion is one of the safest routine medical procedures you can have” — and suggests readers consider “tak[ing] off work the day of your abortion.” It also notes, “Even if you know it’s definitely the right move for you, if you’re dealing with anxiety or other difficult emotions surrounding your abortion … it can be easy to lose sight of the factors that went into your choice.”
