Postabortion woman: I could feel them scraping

A woman talks about how painful her abortion was:

“It hurts so much. It was incredible… They should have told me how much it was going to hurt. What hurt the most was that I could feel when they were scraping around inside. I’ve talked to a lot of girls who said the same thing happened to them when they were really far along.”
