Quais foram seus sentimentos em relação ao aborto(s)?

I have always been pro-choice. But after becoming a mother, I felt even more strongly about it! With two beloved children, my husband and I didn't want another child. When our birth control method (diaphragm) failed, both my husband and I felt certain that an abortion was the best thing for our family. We had no doubts at the time, and have had no regrets since. However, we have not talked about it very much and I didn't realize until recently how important it is to be more open about my experience — not only to advocate for women's choice, but also to present my story.

Como fez o aborto?

Very positive. The medical practitioners were professional and caring. I am so grateful that this service was available when I needed it and I didn't have to worry about the legality or safety of the procedure.

Como era a sua situação nessa altura?

Como as outras pessoas reagiram ao seu aborto?

For more than 6 months, I kept it a secret from my parents. That burden made me anxious and depressed. When I finally told them, they were very supportive, which was a great relief. My mother had volunteered for Planned Parenthood as a birth-control counselor in a hospital maternity ward (advising the new mothers how to avoid the next accidental pregnancy). She continued to be pro-choice until she died at 90.
