I never thought I would ever have an abortion, yet I had 2.

Medication Abortion

7 Weeks

I had my abortion or got my abortion pills from a local hospital or independent health clinic

I sought abortion care from a trusted friend or acquaintance

What was the very first thought in your mind when that pregnancy test was positive?

Damn, what am I going to do?

I felt lost and scared. I didn’t want to keep the child, but lived in a country where abortion was illegal. I had already had a very painful and difficult abortion a few years ago, and was afraid of having to go through the same process again.

I didn’t want to be a mother. My partner at the time didn’t want to become a father either, and we didn’t plan to have a future together.
