Seahorse

When Dana sees a small dot of light flickering in her uterus in black and white on the ultrasound screen, she has to face facts. She is pregnant. Dana decides to end the pregnancy. On the day of her abortion, Dana meets women who each have different ways to deal with their treatment. One is anxious, the other self-assured.  Dana does things differently. She wants to study the picture of her embryo. She wants to utter the words “mother” on the day of her abortion. She wants to hear the voice of the partner, whom she’s lying to. She wants to experience everything. It is the only way she will be able to get through this day.
