I had several abortions. And children too!

Netherlands (uzalwe e Netherlands)

What were your feelings about doing the abortion/s?

An abortion means that you let go of possible future. Even when I was very sure about the decision and relieved after the operation, there was also sadness and mourning about it. The sadness about not being able to enjoy this other future too!

Not on my own body so i find it hard to comment.

What was your situation at this time?

Ngaba ukungabikho mthethweni kokuqhomfa kwakho kuchaphazele iimvakalelo zakho?

The fact that abortion is legal and free in the Netherlands allowed us to focus on our own responsability and decision rather than on other troubles around it! We took it for granted and never realised that our parents had to fight for this right and that in so many countries it's not availabe safely.

Benze ntoni abanye abantu xa ukhupha isisu?

All abortions I was involved in were rather private. Not many others reacted to it. In general abortion is considered a common practice in the netherlands. But people don't talk about it.

legal/illegal

Do you have children?

What is your religion?
