I’ve had two abortions, one at 16 and one at 21. I come from a catholic background so at 16 it would have been worse to have a baby out of marriage than to have an abortion. Now, I have a child with my partner and I got pregnant again because I took a course of antibiotics and I didn’t realize the pill doesn’t work when you take them. My son is 2 years old, so the second abortion wasn’t a very difficult choice to make. I wasn’t really in two minds about it or anything, I was quite happy with my decision. There was a big difference. After the first one I was really upset and it stayed with me for a long time; I felt quite ashamed the first time and I didn’t feel like that this time. This time I was quite calm, quite confident.
