2002 Netherlands (born in Portugal)

What were your feelings about doing the abortion/s?

I felt stupid for getting pregnant, guilty and irresponsible for not being more carefull with my body. I felt ashamed that something like that happened to me, because I'm not a teenager anymore and know how to not get pregnant. I felt afraid that I would damage my body, that it would hurt, but I was sure I didn't want to have a baby at that time and with that boyfriend.

How did you do the abortion?

It's was nothing special. No pain, no trauma, just a choice, just a medical procedure.

What was your situation at this time?

I would be unhappy, the child would be unhappy, my boyfriend would be unhappy.

Did the illegality of your abortion affect your feelings?

Yes. It's much easier to make a decision when you know that you can get the right support and help for your choice.

How did other people react to your abortion?

Abortion is illegal in Portugal.


Do you have children?
