My abortion experience was overall very positive. The staff and doctor were all very supportive. Protestors outside of the clinic were difficult to deal with and caused some distress to me.

Did the illegality of your abortion affect your feelings?

No.

How did other people react to your abortion?

My partner was very supportive of my decision to have an abortion. He was also very concerned with how family and friends would react if they knew about the abortion. The abortion was and still is a secret from many friends and family members. Keeping my abortion secret feels wrong to me. I am in now way ashamed of having had an abortion.
