I am forty nine now and was twenty two when I obtained an abortion. It was, and remains, the best decision I have ever made for myself. I have loved and cared for nieces and nephews but felt no need for my own children.

I felt the same about my abortion as I would about any other medical procedure. I had a health issue that needed sorting out and I sorted it out via a legal medical procedure.

Never once have I regretted it. I have lived my life, with my husband of twenty one years, happily childless. No angst, no regret and no shame. I have never hidden my abortion when the topic has arisen in conversation and I speak of it as the pragmatic decision it was for me and is for women.
