I have had two abortions
2007 Ireland (geboren in Ireland)
Hoe voelde je je over de abortus?
Two different experiences make the list of emotions confusing - My first abortion was one i had to travel for and lie for and could not share with people at home so the emotions were primarily negative yet i was sure it was the right decision. My second abortion took place at home with the help of womenonweb and was a far more positive experience. Thank you.
How did you do the abortion?
I found the foreign clinic quite frightening. The medical abortion at home was by far more comfortable
What was your situation at this time?
My first abortion was in 1997 the second ten years later. I am a single mother and have not the resources for children when pregnancies occurred.
Had de illegaliteit van je abortus invloed op je gevoelens?
Not this time as there were no lies to tell and could take place in the comfort of my home. I found a previous abortion for which i had to travel far more traumatic.
Hoe reageerden andere mensen op je abortus?
I had support of friends
Do you have children?
What is your religion?
Ser mamá por elección, no a la fuerza.
Eu tinha 22 anos, minha menstruação atrasou e meus seios estavam muito inchados.
