Hoe voelde je je over de abortus?

I felt stupid for getting pregnant, guilty and irresponsible for not being more carefull with my body. I felt ashamed that something like that happened to me, because I'm not a teenager anymore and know how to not get pregnant. I felt afraid that I would damage my body, that it would hurt, but I was sure I didn't want to have a baby at that time and with that boyfriend.

How did you do the abortion?

It's was nothing special. No pain, no trauma, just a choice, just a medical procedure.

What was your situation at this time?

I would be unhappy, the child would be unhappy, my boyfriend would be unhappy.

Had de illegaliteit van je abortus invloed op je gevoelens?

Yes. It's much easier to make a decision when you know that you can get the right support and help for your choice.
