I had a surgical abortion at Planned Parenthood in Beacon, NY at 4 weeks. Neither my partner nor I wanted to have a child. There were no protesters at the location and staff were all professional and kind. Medicaid covered the costs and I did not pay anything out of pocket.

I do not regret this decision.

What were your feelings about doing the abortion/s?

This was not a difficult decision, but it is one I don't ever want to have to make again.

How did you do the abortion?

The procedure itself was painful and sad, but I had support from close friends and a good friend brought me to the clinic and spent time with me. Surgical vacuum aspiration abortion early in the first trimester is very safe, and I would recommend it as an option over carrying an unwanted pregnancy to term.

What was your situation at this time?

The people in my life who are important to me were supportive. It was a minor procedure since it was detected early, so recovery time was minimal.
