It was a one-night stand and I ended up pregnant. When I spoke to the guy who would have been the father he was saying it’s completely my decision, but at the same time I could very much tell he was thinking please please get an abortion. I’ve always been quite progressive, and not religious, so I thought that if this ever happened it could be a really easy decision, I’d just get an abortion straightaway, that’d be fine. But then actually it was a harder decision than I thought it would be even though I knew it was the right decision. I had to wait over two weeks before I could have an appointment and get the pills. That wasn’t great but it did give me time to realise I was making the right decision. I don’t really think I knew enough about abortion. There wasn’t any pain after I took the pills, and I bled a lot but three days later I actually had the abortion and I wasn’t really expecting that. It still didn’t really hurt though. Every now and again I think about what might have been but I don’t wish I would go back and change everything. It’s just part of my life now.
