I had an abortion but had the full support of my lover.

2010 Costa Rica

What were your feelings about doing the abortion/s?

I knew it was irresponsible to have a child at that moment but it was still sad and I felt unsure about my decision at first but after I felt sure and knew it was the best decision.

How did you do the abortion?

It was very easy to have an abortion with pills, it was gentle and not at all traumatic.

What was your situation at this time?

I had already 2 children and had recently began a new relationship and he was not ready for more children, the decision to raise my children as his own was enough for the moment although we knew we would have more children together in the future, we just weren't ready yet.

No, it is illegal in my country but I was confident about my decision.

Benze ntoni abanye abantu xa ukhupha isisu?

I did not tell many people, only my very close friends whom I knew would support my decision and not judge me.
