(USA Today) A video produced by a counselor at a abortion clinic showing her undergoing the procedure has gone viral.

Emily Letts, 25, filmed the procedure at her workplace, the Cherry Hill Women’s Center on Kings Highway. She made the three-minute film as part of a contest intended to remove the stigma of abortion.

Letts, whose film has sparked both praise and condemnation, discussed her decision in an essay for the online edition of Cosmopolitan magazine.
