Having an abortion was the right thing for my family.

2020 United States

What were your feelings about doing the abortion/s?

Both my husband and I were, and still are, very comfortable with our abortion. We made the decision to ensure the best future for all members of our family. I would make the same choice again.

How did you do the abortion?

I received the medication from a family planning clinic and took them in the clinic, then went straight home. My husband stayed by my side while the medication took effect and in a number of hours I was bleeding and the pregnancy ended.

What was your situation at this time?

How did other people react to your abortion?

Most people were very supportive, but one of my closest friends, who'd had two miscarriages, was upset about it. It was a few weeks before we could reconnect after the abortion and it was a few years before she could see that her issues were about her loss, not my choice. I was sorry that the abortion affected our relationship for awhile, but never doubted that it was the best choice for me, my husband, and our family, including our other children.
