My story

2015 United States

What were your feelings about doing the abortion/s?

This is not an experience I’d ever wish on anyone, i did an at home procedure using medication, the pain lasted for hours and the bleeding lasted 2 weeks, I cried for hours because it felt like my inside were being ripped apart, I then became very depressed which led to being hospitalised from a Suicide attempt. But I have no regrets because I wouldn’t be who I am today if I didn’t go through with that procedure, and I still think about it almost everyday. And when I see friends and family posting about how awful women are for having abortions, it brings all the emotions back. And that why I am making this public, I want you to know your words hurt, and I am sorry you don’t think abortions should be an option for women, but I do and I always will, because I am a good person and I am a better person because of what I went through.
