I have had two abortions

2007 Ireland (born in Ireland)

What were your feelings about doing the abortion/s?

Two different experiences make the list of emotions confusing - My first abortion was one i had to travel for and lie for and could not share with people at home so the emotions were primarily negative yet i was sure it was the right decision. My second abortion took place at home with the help of womenonweb and was a far more positive experience. Thank you.

How did you do the abortion?

I found the foreign clinic quite frightening. The medical abortion at home was by far more comfortable

What was your situation at this time?

My first abortion was in 1997 the second ten years later. I am a single mother and have not the resources for children when pregnancies occurred.

Did the illegality of your abortion affect your feelings?

Not this time as there were no lies to tell and could take place in the comfort of my home. I found a previous abortion for which i had to travel far more traumatic.

How did other people react to your abortion?

I had support of friends

Do you have children?

What is your religion?
