A 27-year-old woman tweeted during her abortion as a way to, as she put it, "demystify" the procedure for other women.
Angie Jackson, tweeting under the user name "antitheistangie," chronicled her experience as she says she terminated her pregnancy with the use of RU-486, known as the abortion pill.
The graphic posts, like "Cramps are getting a bit more persistent" and "Definitely bleeding now," were posted on February 21.
She says since deciding to chronicle the ordeal publicly, she and her family have been the target of death threats. She says she's been called a "whore" who "can't keep her legs closed," that she is "going to hell" and has also been sent Bible verses.
"Maybe I was naive," Jackson said. "I had not expected that people would think I was making up a medical need for an abortion or other things, like people accusing me of getting pregnant on purpose so I could do this as a publicity stunt," she said.
