I had an abortion and I'm so pleased that I had that option. I was only 18 (sounds like a song!), in my first sexual relationship, and it was never going to be anything but destructive. So, I made my choice and have never regretted it. I now have a beautiful husband and gorgeous twins.

1989 Australia (born in Australia)

There was never any doubt in my mind that an abortion was the right way to go. My doctor was very supportive and my sister transported me 600kms to the closest legal clinic. I think I was very lucky to have such support.

All went well. No dramas.

I was only 18, my partner was 17. We were just having fun. He drank a lot. I had no plans to settle down with a family...then or ever, really. I had battled depression and suicidal thoughts, and didnt want to be responsible for another life.

Did the illegality of your abortion affect your feelings?

I had to travel to another state where it was legal.

How did other people react to your abortion?

My partner was very upset because I had not really consulted him.

No woman should ever have to justify a dessicion on her own body.
