At the age of 15 I was told that I would likely never be able to get pregnant because of serious anomalies in my reproductive organs. At the age of 18, I got pregnant. I was in my first year at university, and I knew the only option for me was to have an abortion. I was so fortunate that the procedure was legal and that every person I encountered throughout the experience was professional and non-judgmental. I have two children and my first granddaughter was born just three weeks ago. Had I not had the abortion, I would never have moved to Poland and started my family. All abortion in my adopted country is now virtually illegal. Abortion is basic health care and a basic human right. The actions of the Polish government are shameful and an outrage in the twenty-first century.

¿Cuáles fueron sus sentimientos acerca de hacer el aborto (s)?
I was determined to have the abortion, but I was also scared. In the years immediately following the abortion, I would sometimes reflect on what the baby/child might have been like, but I always knew the time would come for me to start a family when I was in the right position to do so. I have no regrets and am grateful that I had a choice.
¿Cómo hizo el aborto?
I had serious reproductive tract anomalies that meant the abortion cold not be performed in the clinic as was first planned. I was referred to a hospital for the abortion, and this meant having to arrange financial assistance, which took a few weeks. The waiting was hard, but every person I encountered was respectful of my decision, professional, and non-judgmental. I wish this is how it was for all people seeking to terminate a pregnancy wherever they are in the world.

¿Cómo reaccionaron los demás ante su aborto?
I was supported by my friends and healthcare providers. Later, when I told my mother about the abortion she was also supportive and loving. I have never regretted my decision.
