I had a surgical abortion at Planned Parenthood in Beacon, NY at 4 weeks. Neither my partner nor I wanted to have a child. There were no protesters at the location and staff were all professional and kind. Medicaid covered the costs and I did not pay anything out of pocket.

I do not regret this decision.

What were your feelings about doing the abortion/s?

This was not a difficult decision, but it is one I don't ever want to have to make again.

How did you do the abortion?

The procedure itself was painful and sad, but I had support from close friends and a good friend brought me to the clinic and spent time with me. Surgical vacuum aspiration abortion early in the first trimester is very safe, and I would recommend it as an option over carrying an unwanted pregnancy to term.

What was your situation at this time?

Hoe het ander mense op u aborsie gereageer?

The people in my life who are important to me were supportive. It was a minor procedure since it was detected early, so recovery time was minimal.

legal/illegal
