I'M NOT SORRY.

2006 United States

What were your feelings about doing the abortion/s?

How did you do the abortion?

I had anabortion in 2006. I was a 190 pound athlete using the patch as my birth control method. The Patch had recently been put on the market in 2005. The producers did not know that the patch was less effective for heavier women. My fiance and I found ourselves in a situation that we were unable to remedy: I was in school, he was working to support both of us and we just did not have the means to begin a family. The abortion itself was uncomfortable but it was not painful. The staff were professional, kind, and compassionate. It was uncomfortable and it felt like heavy menstrual cramping, but it was not a horrible process. The staff made absolutely sure that the abortion was what *I* wanted. It made me feel like I could speak for myself. I did not "grieve" for my pregnancy and I experienced no long term side effects despite many peoples' efforts to make abortions sound like a "dangerous" and harmful procedure. I am living proof. I am not ashamed of my abortion. I am not sorry.

What was your situation at this time?

واکنش دیگران نسبت به سقط جنین شما چیست؟

I haven't told many people that I had an abortion, but most of my friends were very respectful and supportive. My parents would have been angry and disappointed in me as they are very conservative.

legal/illegal
