I had 3 abortions and as a medical student, I helped preform several abortions as well as seeing the results of "illegal" abortions
Quels étaient vos sentiments au sujet de faire l'avortement / s?
in looking back I did feel guilty but so relieved -- also the persistent nausea I experienced with all 3 pregnancies stopped almost immediately which was huge - and now many years later I still feel such relief and I feel such fear about what is happening in the US and other places right now -- all women deserve a safe accessible inexpensive choice
Comment avez-vous fait l'avortement?
it was relatively quick with some physical pain and major emotional pain even with supportive partner -- the nurses were empathetic but the doctors (could be my projection) seemed distant and cold
Quelle était votre situation à ce moment-là?
I had one daughter and a very busy and fulfilling career and life and I did not want to have more children -- it was in some ways a "selfish" decision but one that I am glad I was able to make and obtain a safe abortion without major financial or health costs
L'illégalité de votre avortement a-t-elle affecté vos sentiments ?
I felt incredibly lucky -- as a college student before becoming a physician I had worked in a public hospital in Arequipa Peru where women were brought when they had unfinished "illegal" abortions -- they were denounced by the healthcare providers because it was illegal and often not given any pain medicines -- and they had many horrible long term consequences including infections, infertility, chronic pain and this continues https://radioambulante.org/en/audio-en/we-decide as well as we will see more of this in the US and beyond and I try to support groups like planned parenthood, the reproductive rights foundation, women on waves, women on web
Comment les autres personnes ont-elles réagi à votre avortement ?
In general with support and love although distinctly an issue especially from the physician who did 2 of these abortions that "3 is too many"
What is your religion?
