I had a SUPER LATE abortion.

2012 United States

What were your feelings about doing the abortion/s?

It gave me so many mixed emotions! I was happy to follow through but felt selfish(dad to be wanted to keep it) and maybe a little guilty.. or definitely judged.

How did you do the abortion?

Took 2 days, day 1 they do ultrasound and all that then they gave me medicine to help induce me and soften the cervix. Had milf cramps that evening. Went back day 2 and they gave me a large shot near my belly button, sat for a few hours, went under anesthesia, woke up in a different room with several other women, groggy.. and waited to be checked and released. But I was 20weeks along.. so yeah

What was your situation at this time?

I mainly was not ready to give up no responsibilities and couldn't afford a kid.

Did the illegality of your abortion affect your feelings?

Being legal didnt make the choice any easier.

How did other people react to your abortion?

Close family supported me. Friends (some not all) that I thought would support me talked bad about me behind my back and to my face.

legal/illegal

What is your religion?
