I had an abortion and I do not regret my choice. It is very important to me to remove the stigma

2001 Canada (born in Canada)

What were your feelings about doing the abortion/s?

I could have clicked just about every box here. I felt such a range of emotion around my choice. I so badly regret getting into the situation, not the abortion itself. I felt guilty, I felt sad, I felt shame but above all else I felt relief, I felt sure of my decision, I felt so thankful that it was MY choice

How did you do the abortion?

What was your situation at this time?

I was couch surfing at the time. I was 19, had no education or any realistic prospects of decent income. I was not in a relationship with the would-be father. I just knew it was the clear choice for me

Did the illegality of your abortion affect your feelings?

no, I would have made the same choice. It just would have been much less safe

How did other people react to your abortion?

I was lucky enough to have support from all who knew me and what was going on

Do you have children?

What is your religion?
