I had an abortion but had the full support of my lover.

2010 Costa Rica

I knew it was irresponsible to have a child at that moment but it was still sad and I felt unsure about my decision at first but after I felt sure and knew it was the best decision.

It was very easy to have an abortion with pills, it was gentle and not at all traumatic.

I had already 2 children and had recently began a new relationship and he was not ready for more children, the decision to raise my children as his own was enough for the moment although we knew we would have more children together in the future, we just weren't ready yet.

Did the illegality of your abortion affect your feelings?

No, it is illegal in my country but I was confident about my decision.

How did other people react to your abortion?

I did not tell many people, only my very close friends whom I knew would support my decision and not judge me.
