It isn't and shouldn't be as taboo as it is made out to be.

2015

I've had both surgical and medical abortions (2 total) and I have a two year old baby girl. There is no shame in having an abortion and you should t ever feel like it is a shameful thing or let anyone tell you that what you are doing or plan to do it a shameful thing. The medical option was a scary idea to me at first but it was fine in the end. I cramped a bit and bled, and there were clots - but it was pretty easy. The waiting at planned parenthood was probably the worst part. As the surgical option is faster, the medical (pill) abortion option is less invasive and you can do the second part in the privacy of your own home. Hopefully I will never have to have another abortion, but if I had to I would go the medical route again.

Did the illegality of your abortion affect your feelings?

It was legal. And if it were illegal, it wouldn't affect my feelings at all.

How did other people react to your abortion?

My family was very supportive.
