I was let down by birth control and had two abortions. During my second abortion I experienced complications and had a number of scares which I might not have got through emotionally or physically without the help of BPAS and the NHS.
My feelings about my abortion were comfortable, peaceful, resolved, confident, sure.
I have felt confident in both of my abortions that I made the right decision, and was lucky in that I was supported in my choice.
I wasn't ready emotionally or financially to have a child. I didn't want to put my body through pregnancy and childbirth and I also didn't have the security to raise a child.
I am proud of the decision I made.
My family and friends were very supportive.
