I had my first abortion when I was 20. I was studying abroad at the time and I went through the procedure in a foreign system by myself. Looking back I’m so proud of myself for my strength. I got pregnant again at 23 and had a much more complicated time. BPAS supported me through an ectopic pregnancy scare and a failed medical abortion before I eventually had a surgical abortion a few weeks later. It was a tough experience but I don’t regret it – I was really well supported and it’s strengthened my sense of self and my relationship with my body.
