Woman's Abortion Story Goes Viral After Trump's 'Rip The Baby Out' Comment
In a Facebook post that has been shared over 20,000 times, Utah resident Alyson Draper emphatically wrote,
Draper published her story on Facebook shortly after the end of the third presidential debate, a debate during which Donald Trump said late-term abortions allow people to "rip the baby out of the womb" on "the final day."
That, of course, is not true. And Draper went out of her way to illustrate that, even if it required telling a not-so-pleasant story.
According to her post, the situation that led to the Utah woman's late-term abortion was a complicated one.
Draper was supposed to give birth to twins, but one of them was dead and the other had a "severe" spinal defect that Draper said would require the baby to live on life support for a matter of days.
The fact that Utah made late-term abortions illegal only further complicated matters.
Ultimately, the late-term abortion was done via C-section. Draper described it as a "terrible" and "horrific" experience that left her psychologically scared.
In the end, Draper wanted to push across a message that asserted two things: Such decisions are painful and delicate, and they should only be left to the woman.
