Strength & Solidarity

2016 Ireland

What were your feelings about doing the abortion/s?

I felt afraid before, afraid what it would feel like and if something went wrong what would happen, but I also felt strong and determined and today I feel happy, grateful, proud of who I was and amazed by the amazing women on web supporting fellow women, and all women out there who struggle and succeed despite the odds,

How did you do the abortion?

I am so grateful to Womenonweb.org, without their help, my life would look very different right now. I realised I was pregnant, whilst abortion was still illegal in Ireland, I was in an abusive relationship, coercive control etc and had I not made the decision to contact women on web.org & been helped by them so well, every step of the way, I would have a very different life right now. I am lucky in that the abortion itself for me, was painless, nothing more of a heavy period, I was scared first but everything was okay. I am also lucky that I never regretted my decision, I seen a Mum and her baby in the park a few weeks later and remember feeling affirmed that that was not something I was ready for, at that point in my life, and I am lucky I have been able to leave my abuser and lucky I do not have his child as I would therefore never fully be free, I can't express enough solidarity and strength to all women out there, you will be okay, I hope you have some support, I thank women on web for the support they provided & their communication, thank you, you helped me to make the right decision for me, which could have impacted my life forever
