‘I felt like I died’: New TV ads combat ‘happy’ abortion stories with the truth

ROSWELL, GA, October 30, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A new round of television commercials seeks to counter a growing narrative that abortion leaves women feeling uplifted, empowered, and relieved.

The pro-abortion movement’s “1-in-3” campaign is asking women to share happy memories of aborting their children, scheduling abortion celebration events at 100 locations in 32 states.

But the data shows post-abortive women are actually disproportionately likely to suffer from depression, substance abuse, and other forms of trauma.

To tell their stories, VirtueMedia has released six ads featuring the testimonies of women whose experiences were anything but positive.

The series, entitled “Been There,” features five women whose grief is evident in every frame.

“I felt like I died,” said Patti, who had an abortion at age 16. “I really felt like a part of me died that day.”

“I had experienced a rape at a very young age, and I compared it very much to rape – very traumatic,” she said. Decades later, she still has tears in her eyes. The grief “compounds because of other choices you make as a result of the pain and the suffering that you’re going through,” she said.
