I had an abortion only a few months ago. I'm 30, a praticing Christian, a school teacher and unmarried.

2007 Jamaica (nacido en Jamaica)

¿Cuáles fueron sus sentimientos acerca de hacer el aborto (s)?

It's strange to feel all these things at the same time but this is how I feel. I'm relieved that I have not disappointed anyone (except me) but I am ashamed and disappointed in myself for not being able to take charge of my life enough to avoid an unwanted pregnancy.

¿Cómo hizo el aborto?

I found that it just kind of had me out of sorts for a while. I had to just lie there for about 20 minutes. I bled for a couple of days and had terrible cramps. But it was over in less than a week and I'm ok now.

¿Cuál era su situación en ese momento?

My partner (now ex) already had grown children and was not looking for a serious relatonship or a new family. I couldn't face the world pregnant. Too many people would be disappointed by the fact that I was sexually active.

¿La ilegalidad del aborto afectó sus sentimientos?

No. It was illegal but I went to a respected gyn who did it in what appered to be a clean and safe environment. I was embarassed as his staff kept looking at me.

¿Cómo reaccionaron otras personas a tu aborto?

My partner (now ex) was relieved. He had more to lose from having a child than I did. My sister, the only other person that knows was quite supportive. I'm happy I told her what I was going to do.
