....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?
Ang iligalidad ng iyong pagpapalaglag ay nakakaapekto sa iyong damdamin?
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.
Ano ang reaksyon ng ibang tao sa iyong pagpapalaglag?
I am lucky to have very supportive friends, but I have told very few people. The ones I have told are unfazed.
