Britney Spears has publicly shared about the pain of abortion in her upcoming memoir. “To this day, it’s one of the most agonizing things I have ever experienced in my life,” she says.
In her biography, Britney reveals for the first time, that she had an abortion while in a relationship with Justin Timberlake, which left her devastated. Tragically, this is the same kind of painful experience millions of women have struggled with after their abortions.
Britney also exposes a devastating reality that many women who experience an abortion also face. That is, they felt pressured, manipulated, or coerced into their abortions.
Britney writes, “Justin definitely wasn’t happy about the pregnancy. He said we weren’t ready to have a baby in our lives…” She goes on to say, “If it had been left up to me alone, I never would have done it. And yet Justin was so sure that he didn’t want to be a father.”
The Lozier Institute conducted a survey of more than 1,000 American women between the ages of 41 and 45, including over 200 women who acknowledged having had abortions. The results concluded nearly 70% of the women who had abortions described them as being coerced, pressured, or inconsistent with their own values and preferences.
Stanton Women’s Clinics on the pain of abortion
Brandi Swindell, founder and CEO of Stanton Healthcare, states: “I admire Britney Spears for being brave and sharing her very personal experience of the pain of abortion. The truth is, as many as 70% of women feel pressured into an unwanted or forced abortion.
“Britney’s story represents millions of women who have also experienced unwanted and forced abortions. I hope publicly sharing her story will create continued awareness that abortion trauma is real. And that she is not alone. We see you Britney… and we mourn the loss of your child with you, just as we do with the many women who access our Stanton women’s clinics looking for after abortion care and recovery.
“Abortion on demand has created an ‘undue burden’ on women who are often pressured into unwanted and forced abortions. At Stanton Healthcare, we stand with women, and we believe their stories. We encourage Britney to embrace after abortion healing, to find hope, and to be well.”
Linda Thomas, Director of Community Outreach with Stanton Healthcare, shared similar sentiments about her own experience of the pain of abortion: “My heart breaks for Britney. I have also experienced the pain, grief and agony that follow an unwanted abortion. I am proud of her for courageously choosing to share the truth about the devastating pain an abortion creates in a woman’s life, and the reality of the baby whose life was tragically ended.
“This is why we’re so passionate at Stanton about extending healing and love to every woman struggling with the pain and regret of a past abortion.”
Rev. Patrick Mahoney, Chief Strategy Officer for Stanton Healthcare adds: “By sharing her very personal story on the pain of abortion, Britney Spears exposes two troubling realities. First, is the real emotional pain and hurt of abortion years after it took place. Britney says, ‘To this day, it’s one of the most agonizing things I have ever experienced in my life.’
“Sadly, these are the same feelings millions of women have experienced after their abortion. This supports medical studies finding that women who feel pressured to agree to an abortion are more likely to experience negative emotional and mental health reactions. Britney’s abortion also reveals that millions of women have felt pressured and manipulated into unwanted and forced abortions. Her story exposes the false narrative all women freely ‘choose’ to have an abortion.”
