I had an abortion and I'm not ashamed

2009 Australia (born in Australia)

What were your feelings about doing the abortion/s?

As this was my first abortion I felt a little nervous and maybe a bit scared. But it isn't as bad as everyone makes it out to be... It was A LOT easier than I expected and I felt a lot of relief afterward. Women have the right to choose.

How did you do the abortion?

I had a surgical abortion, the pain was similar to that of period pain... It was very quick and convenient.

What was your situation at this time?

There were a lot of reasons for my decision, on top of all that... It just didn't feel right. It wasn't the right time and that's OK.

Did the illegality of your abortion affect your feelings?

I feel grateful that in this day and age, women in Australia have access to a legal and safe abortion.

How did other people react to your abortion?

My family aren't religious, so they were fine about it - My mum had an abortion when she was younger too. My friends and family were overall mostly supportive of my decision.

Do you have children?

What is your religion?
