Choices

Post by S.Morgan-MacKay »

The first abortion was the hardest. The ones that followed were easier. I hate to admit that, but it's true.

The day I found out, the doctor's voice was calm, as of this were an everyday event.

I listened, thinking will it hurt?

"Not with today's technology," he said, reading my mind. It's "safe and effective."

In a flash I was out, cradled in his hand. He smiled to my new mother, prepped and waiting.

I glanced at my former mother. She cried as her machine powered on.

Tell her I'm sorry, I said, choices are hard.

The Doctor nodded.

I keep coming back to this one. It's haunting in the best way a Black Mirror ep usually is. Well done.
