I made the right decision.

2017 Canada

What were your feelings about doing the abortion/s?

I have gone from feeling afraid angry, ashamed, to comfortable and confident. I was confused, disappointed, utterly grieving and feeling guilty, but became happy, the realization in my mind casting away all doubts. I felt irresponsible for getting pregnant, numbed by the actual fact that I was carrying life in me. But my abortion made me peaceful, relieved, resolving my dilemma. I was not sad after all. I felt selfish but that was the moralistic side of society talking. I was made to feel selfish and stupid by the messages they'd send through their campaigns. The truth is that there is nothing wrong with abortion. It's okay to have an abortion. No one is

How did you do the abortion?

The absolute best service in a Feminist clinic. I was truly privileged. I am glad to have advocated for myself for the best possible outcome.

What was your situation at this time?

Barely an adult, and a broke student with an unsupportive family, as much as I wanted to keep my baby, I could not have put them through the struggle of social stigmatization and misery from poverty. Nor could I have attempted to bind my partner in this way without his input.

ඔබේ ගබ්සාව නීති විරෝධී වීම ඔබේ හැඟීම්වලට බලපෑවාද?

Had it been illegal, I would have been more stressed. I am thankful to have been born in a country where it has been legal since before my lifetime.

ඔබේ ගබ්සාවට අනෙක් අය ප්‍රතිචාර දැක්වූයේ කෙසේද?

My family doesn't know because of the social stigma. My partner held my hand and supported me as I went through it, relieved that an unplanned pregnancy wouldn't interrupt our plans towards holistic stability.
