Often when people write about their abortion, they already have a perspective on it, or they are writing for a certain audience (the pro-life community, others who regret an abortion, the pro-choice community, others who are determined not to regret an abortion, etc.).

This short essay about an abortion was written by a young woman for a bulletin board where people talk about why they got a particular tattoo. It seems unusually innocent of any particular perspective.

Why the Sigur Ros Angel?

It is a moving article.

"I was lying in recovery listening to the girl beside me ball her eyes out, and I realized I could not cry if I wanted to. All of a sudden I had to run to bathroom and throw up. I barely made it; I didn't have time to close the door. The nurse just looked at me and said "it feels better doesn't it?" Feels better?"

Here is a picture of the Sigur-Ros angel fetus that became her tattoo.

Thank you to a reader for sending me these links.
