Two Abortions

by Amy

October 11, 2023

I live in England, so I’ve watched with a little distance what has recently happened in America. I’m 37 and never been pregnant until the end of 2021.  I’ve just had a second abortion almost exactly nine months after I first got pregnant.  I told people about the first one and, the second I’ve mostly kept a secret…which feels strange. I’ve felt stupid, ashamed, and irresponsible that this happened again. I just read an article about someone who had the same thing happen. That was good to read.


And I’m aware that other women cannot access what I can access. That blows my mind. And I worry for what the world will be like for people born today and those still to come. Thanks for the space to share
