My now husband and I got pregnant the first time we slept together. We were both in our early 20's with no real income. It was not the right time. We had talked about what we would do if we got pregnant before we ever had sex. When it happened, we already knew what to do. I was too far along for pills and opted for general anesthesia. I'm glad we made the choice when we did. It made it possible for us to fall in love and get married and start a family when we are ready and can support a child.

What were your feelings about doing the abortion/s?

How did you do the abortion?

People picketed around the clinic I went to. The staff were understanding, efficient, and seemed generally interested in my well-being. I was in and out of the clinic in about 2 hours.

What was your situation at this time?

واکنش دیگران نسبت به سقط جنین شما چیست؟

My very Catholic mother had a hard time supporting me but the feminist in her supported my choice. Everyone else was supportive. I felt like many of them felt like we should have felt more guilty than we did. It was the right decision for us, there's no shame in it.
