What were your feelings about doing the abortion/s?

Before and throughout the process I had my mind set on it because of the situation I was in at the time. But now it's been a few months and I'm conflicted about my feelings about it, everytime I see a baby which by God they are everywhere I cant help but to think about the life I took.

How did you do the abortion?

I found out that I was pregnant after new years. I was 7 weeks along and I'm only 17 so I didn't really have a choice on method of the abortion I was only offered a medical termination and had to stay on a ward. The doctors I spoke to were all lovely and didn't judge which made my experience bearable but for my final appointment the nurses that looked after me on the ward I couldn't thank them enough for everything, they were so kind and made sure that I was comfortable throughout.

What was your situation at this time?

உங்கள் கருக்கலைப்பு சட்டவிரோதமானது உங்கள் உணர்வுகளை பாதித்ததா?

No, abortions are legal where I am.

உங்கள் கருக்கலைப்புக்கு மற்றவர்கள் எவ்வாறு பதிலளித்தனர்?

I didn't really tell anyone about being pregnant apart from my boyfriend and made the decision to have an abortion at the time and to not tell anyone. I went to my first appointment alone but then was unable to get transport to the second and third appointment so then told my sister and asked if she could take me. My sister was shocked and upset for me but she was there for me the whole time. For my boyfriend though we didn't speak about it really after the decision was made and he was working all the time so he couldn't really be there.
