I had an abortion about seven years ago when I was 16. I was in an abusive relationship and I know that if I were to have the baby, it means that I will have to marry my abusive boyfriend. I decided to had an abortion for the sake of my own safety and the baby itself. I know I wouldn't be able to support the baby myself, and I know things are going to be worsens if I had to marry the baby daddy. Now I have a Masters degree, and a well-paying job, because I could focus on myself and fixing my issues. I will always cherish the memory I have during the pregnancy and will always love the baby in secrecy.

What were your feelings about doing the abortion/s?

I was sad, because I wish this wasn't the circumstance. I always wanted to be a mother, but I had to understand that motherhood wasn't easy. I felt relieved because with the abortion I am able to escape the abusive relationship.

How did you do the abortion?

It was painful, like an extremely painful period. Make sure that you have someone with you during the abortion since you lost a lot of blood.

What was your situation at this time?

I am depressed and I couldn't even support myself

Did the illegality of your abortion affect your feelings?

No, it doesn't

How did other people react to your abortion?

I only told my ex boyfriend's mother because she understands that her son are acting abusive towards me. She was reluctant and as a devout Christian she was angry at first, however she supported me after she hear me out.
