SAN FRANCISCO, January 21, 2015 ( - This Saturday, thousands of pro-lifers will converge on San Francisco for the annual Walk for Life West Coast. One of the speakers at the event is Rebekah Buell, a young mother who planned to end the life of her son with the abortion pills RU-486.

ZENIT spoke with Buell about her choice to use chemical abortion and what she did when she changed her mind.

ZENIT: Tell us your experience of abortion.

Buell: I never thought I would be an abortion consumer, yet at 18 years old I found myself pregnant for the second time. The news of this pregnancy crushed me; here I was in my first year of college, in the midst of a divorce, and already a mother to an 11-month-old little boy. I thought being a single mother to two children would be completely impossible.

In order to not further disappoint my family, and to not further complicate my education, I made the decision to have a chemical abortion, which is a two-step process. On March 13, 2013, I walked into a Planned Parenthood clinic, sat down, and swallowed the RU-486 abortion pill, the first pill that is designed to cause the death of the unborn child. I was then sent home with the second set of pills (Misoprostol) and instructed to take them 24 hours later, as that is what causes the “fetus” to be expelled.
