....because my pregnancy was unexpected and I did not want another child. My family was complete. After years of struggling to have the two children I did have, I was devastated when I saw that pink line on the pregnancy test as I contemplated turning 40. I quite literally wanted to die.

What were your feelings about doing the abortion/s?
I was only afraid of the pain - which in the end was minimal. I was able to do exactly what I wanted and needed to do in the privacy and comfort of my own home. I wish more women had access to this option.
How did you do the abortion?
I had a medical abortion in the privacy of my own home and all went as planned. In my case, I experienced very little pain. It simply felt like a heavy period. I planned to spend the weekend in bed and taking it easy. By Monday, I was back on my feet taking care of my other two children. I wish more women understood this option and had access to it.
What was your situation at this time?
Påverkade olagligheten i din abort dina känslor?
Yes! Unfortunately in the US, finding a doctor that would provide me with a medical abortion was much more difficult than the abortive process itself. I also had to endure invasive/obnoxious protestors at my appointments.
Hur reagerade andra på din abort?
I am lucky to have very supportive friends, but I have told very few people. The ones I have told are unfazed.
What is your religion?
