I want to change the world.

2014 United States

What were your feelings about doing the abortion/s?

It was hard at first- I struggled with my faith and my conservative Roman Catholic upbringing. I found an amazing therapist and worked through my issues, and rose above it all. My abortion was the best decision I have ever made (and I have made a lot of good decisions) and I thank God every day that I was able to make this decision for myself.

How did you do the abortion?

I definitely freaked myself out by reading countless horror stories on the internet, mostly published by so-called "Crisis Pregnancy Centers". But it was much easier and less painful than I had imagined, and I really wish I would have come across this website before my abortion to calm my nerves. There was some cramping, pretty light bleeding (less then my usual period), and nausea- but I honestly think it was mostly nerves.

What was your situation at this time?

I have a long list of dreams and goals to accomplish before I even start thinking about having children. Who has time for motherhood when you're trying to change the world?

Adakah haramnya pengguguran anda mempengaruhi perasaan anda?

My abortion was legal- I live in New York, one of the most "liberal" states when it comes to abortion. I had never given much thought to the legality of abortion before I found myself in a situation needing one, and my experience has really opened my eyes and lit a fire deep within my soul. Every single woman has the right to access safe, legal, and affordable abortion care- and I will spend my entire life fighting for that right.

Bagaimana reaksi orang lain terhadap pengguguran anda?

I am so incredibly lucky to have a supportive network of friends, co-workers, fellow interns, and doctors. Everyone that knows about my abortion (which is actually a lot of people, now that I think of it...) was super supportive, caring, and reassuring.
