An abortion in an abusive relationship

2015 United Kingdom

What were your feelings about doing the abortion/s?

How did you do the abortion?

It was scary and painful like anything invasive and medical tends to be. But I cried with relief with womenonweb could help me. I'm so grateful to the people who make this site possible and hopeful that other women can access these resources as safely as I could.

What was your situation at this time?

Did the illegality of your abortion affect your feelings?

I was nervous solely because I didn't want my abuser to find out but completely relieved that it was possible to carry out discretely and safely in my home.

How did other people react to your abortion?

My brother is the only person who knew, he helped me to carry out the abortion in my flat and keep my abusive partner distracted.
