My abortion

by Anonymous

October 6, 2020

At the beginning of 2020, I realized that I was pregnant. after a few days of deep thinking and discussion with the other person involved, I made the decision to get an abortion. the choice was entirely my own but it was made for both me and him. I knew it was the best decision for both of us. because of low funding, the clinic didn’t have sedatives available and due to the pandemic, I wasn’t allowed to bring my mother in with me. the procedure was so scary and painful and I cried the whole time but i was very thankful to have the doctors that I had. they constantly attempted to soothe me, telling me it was okay and how much longer it would be or that I was doing so good. I wish I could find the nurse I had and thank her for holding my hand and wiping away my tears with a tissue. I would never be able to thank them enough for the comfort that they gave me.

Remember that our stories are ours to tell. We’d love to hear your story too!
