YES! They are too horrific
Mum-of one Lora Bishop, 28, from Eastbourne, Sussex, recently had an abortion.
I had my abortion on March 12 this year.
My heart wanted to keep my baby but I'd split from the father and I knew he didn't want the pregnancy to go ahead.
So, feeling trapped, I had the termination and every day since my decision has haunted me.
Having the abortion was my first mistake. Looking at pro-life websites on the internet was my second.
Initially, I went on the sites to try and feel better about what I'd done.
I was looking for photographs of a 12-week foetus, the stage at which I had the abortion, in the hope that it wouldn't look like a baby yet, just cells.
I knew in my heart, though, that a 12-week foetus isn't just cells but is formed and looks very human. I realised then that I'd made a big mistake and I began seeking more pictures of aborted foetuses - torturing myself.
I doubt I am the only woman to do this after a termination.
These sites are sickening enough to the average viewer, but to a woman who has had a termination she didn't want they are soul-destroying.
It broke my heart to let my unborn child go. No woman ever wants to do this but there can be many factors at play which could include: an abusive relationship with the child's father, lack of money, lack of space, illness, mental health issues, birth deformity and the wellbeing of any other children.
I believe viewing these sites will only make a woman's decision harder and probably jeopardise her mental health.
But they will not, I suspect, make her change her mind about having an abortion.
It's not an overstatement for me to say that looking at pro-life websites with graphic images of aborted foetuses has made coping with my abortion even harder.
Before looking at them, I was dealing with it. I had to cope to be able to look after my daughter, who at three years-old is still just a baby herself.
But I found the images shocking and disturbing.
No one should have to look at such disturbing photographs, I believe they are too shocking and awful to be in the public domain.
I now wish very much that I was stronger and it could have been different.
But my baby was getting bigger every day and I had to make a quick decision.
It's done now. I can't go back. Nor can I get the images of aborted foetuses I have seen on these sites out of my head.
No one has the right to try and make me, or any …
