What were your feelings about doing the abortion/s?

Initially, negative feelings--shock, fear, sadness, confusion--set in. However, through knowing that the process can be completed and I no longer had to feel these negative feelings, I felt hope, peace, relief, and assurance within myself.

How did you do the abortion?

Personally, my abortion was a very stressful and scary time. It was toward the end of my senior year of college. I didn't know how to react to it. On paper, it was a very smooth process. I take for granted how easy it was to call Planned Parenthood, schedule an appointment, get the pills, and complete the abortion. All the while, I had a loving partner who remained by my side. At the time, I may have made comments about how long I had to wait in the PP waiting room, or how much pain I was in--but looking back on it, the fact that I was able to complete this process so much easier than other women...it just breaks my heart.

What was your situation at this time?

Bagaimana reaksi orang lain terhadap pengguguran anda?

My partner and I were very shocked and scared when we found out. I told a few close friends, but decided not to tell my family (they're religious and conservative). Everyone I told was very supportive.
