2014 United States

Initially, negative feelings--shock, fear, sadness, confusion--set in. However, through knowing that the process can be completed and I no longer had to feel these negative feelings, I felt hope, peace, relief, and assurance within myself.

Personally, my abortion was a very stressful and scary time. It was toward the end of my senior year of college. I didn't know how to react to it. On paper, it was a very smooth process. I take for granted how easy it was to call Planned Parenthood, schedule an appointment, get the pills, and complete the abortion. All the while, I had a loving partner who remained by my side. At the time, I may have made comments about how long I had to wait in the PP waiting room, or how much pain I was in--but looking back on it, the fact that I was able to complete this process so much easier than other women...it just breaks my heart.

How did other people react to your abortion?

My partner and I were very shocked and scared when we found out. I told a few close friends, but decided not to tell my family (they're religious and conservative). Everyone I told was very supportive.
