The best way to learn about the realities of any given experience is by listening to those who have lived it themselves. Sadly, when it comes to the realities of abortion, the microphone is rarely given to the women who've experienced it.
So, when the writer Nona Aronowitz posted about her recent experience getting an abortion, the internet was all ears. Aronowitz kicked off her thread by stating just how harmful the proposed fetal heartbeat legislation is.
For those unfamiliar, fetal heartbeat bills criminalize abortion once a heartbeat is detected. Most of the time, a fetus' heartbeat can be detected as early as six weeks, which is earlier than many women realize they're pregnant.
