I had an abortion in the US in my late 20’s; I’m 45 now. It was a medical abortion before they were legal and widely available. Wrong time in my life, totally wrong boyfriend. Not one tear, zero regrets – I have never considered the ‘what ifs?’ of not terminating. It was a positive choice for me to make. I now have two kids with the right partner at the right time in my life – they are a total joy for me – and I still have no regrets about my abortion. I am more committed to reproductive choice than ever – if that’s even possible – now that I’m a mother.
