The sin of relativism on full display.

A woman in New Jersey has filmed her own abortion as a publicity stunt to show that it is "safer than giving birth." A facepalm is entirely appropriate.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Emily Letts, 25, from New Jersey, works as an abortion counselor. Confounded by the women who come to her experiencing grief over their own abortions, Letts decided to film her abortion to inspire other women, and to show then it doesn't hurt. Much like a parent might eat a vegetable to encourage a child.

The level of sickness and depravity, not to mention the Orwellian twist is extreme. It's evident in her video as she smiles during the procedure, which only took a few minutes to complete. It was as if she enjoyed the occasion.

Support a pro-life movement that actually works!

Letts wrote about her experience on the website ThinkProgress, and she explained that it was safe and pain free. She told Cosmopolitan that she simply wanted to address the fears women had of getting an abortion. She added "There is no cutting, and risk of infertility is less than one percent."

At least she admits there's a one percent risk of butchering.

However, the facts fly in the face of her arrogant smile. Most notably, abortion isn't safe or pain free as the BABY, which is killed in the procedure, dies a gruesome death, usually by suction. Although she dismisses such a violent death as a "myth" on ThinkProgress, the reality is that the process is gruesome.

She claims that women have "virtually zero chance of dying from a legal procedure" pretty much ignoring those women who have, in fact died from this "legal procedure" as well as the fact that half of all abortion victims are female.

The video does not show her lower half, nor the doctors, or the procedure actually being performed. When it's finished, she professed to "feel good." She added, "It was right for me and no one else."

This is precisely the kind of moral relativism that is destroying our nation. It has been the downfall of kings since David, and entire civilizations. Ignoring the lessons of history, our abject lack of concern for those least capable of defending themselves, babies in the mother's womb, it condemns our nation to a terrible fate.

In her ThinkProgress essay, Letts admits that many women face terrible long-term consequences for having abortions. The body is designed to bear children and an attachment is formed long before the baby bump appears. Not all mothers are aware of this attachment until the natural process of grief and loss set in.

Abortion is a horror and an affront to all people, especially women. Abortion reduces women to sexual objects, correlates children to parasites, and deprives both mothers and fathers of the world's greatest joy. Above all, it destroys children who are the foundation of our future society.

The filming and display of an abortion as a form of propaganda is a new low in the sickness and depravity of the anti-life movement and demonstrates to the world what we truly face in the fight to save children's lives.
