Woman says abortion left her “stripped of joy”

Kayla Brandt told the story of her abortion:

“I found out I was pregnant on a Tuesday and aborted on a Friday. At the time I was thinking I needed to fix it and quick.

The doctor sat at the end of the bed and took a metal basin with my baby’s remains in it and sloshed it around and said well I think we got all of it. It was then I immediately felt regret and remorse at that moment…

They refer to women like me as the walking dead. I merely existed and did a poor job of that. I couldn’t think about anything else. I was so hollow and so empty. Just stripped of joy, stripped of my life.”
