My story

by Alison K

October 20, 2020

I’ve had three abortions and as well as three live births. The first two abortions were because I was young and terrified of becoming a mother. The shame I endured as a result of my Catholic upbringing was way worse than the procedure. Also the shame I felt when my abusive ex called me a baby killer was soul destroying. The third abortion was technically me being induced at 21 weeks because I had massive blood loss and the baby was no longer viable and I had I been forced to continue the pregnancy I would have died leaving my young boys orphaned . I’m 42 now and I am shouting my abortions in solidarity with other women. I am no longer ashamed.
