Now, I could be wrong about this. I am not saying that I am 100% certain that Emily Letts did not film a surgical abortion being done on herself – but there are just too many things that don’t seem to make sense about her video and her follow-up story published on Cosmopolitan.
This is purely my own speculation and opinion, but I really cannot convince myself that the video is real, and I have watched it several times. Here are some of my reasons:
- I do not believe that Emily Letts was pregnant to begin with. She shows no proof in the video of a positive pregnancy test or even gives a date that confirms her last menstrual period. She does not even show an ultrasound picture, which she claims that she will forever hold onto.
- She tells Cosmo that she was “only two to three weeks” pregnant. What does that mean? Two to three weeks from conception or two to three weeks from her last menstrual period? Also, it is very unrealistic that someone who is sexually active and NOT on birth control is not monitoring their period to know if they skip one. She even said that she didn’t want to use birth control pills, so she would keep track of her ovulation to know when not to have sex. Someone who monitors their ovulation would know if they skipped a period and purposefully take a pregnancy test, not on a whim. Yes, I understand that some people have a period while they are pregnant, but it is not likely. Emily said that she happened to take a pregnancy test at the clinic just for the heck of it, and then schedules her abortion then next day after telling her manager.
