Abortion is awful says postabortive woman

From a postabortive woman:

When talking to someone who has had [an abortion] you don’t need many words – you can just say you had one and you feel lousy, and that communicates, because a woman who has been through the experience can agree that it’s awful without needing an explanation of why it was so terrible. But if you’re asked to describe the feeling to someone who hasn’t had the experience, it’s very hard to know what to say.
