The staff was very uncaring
I was recently divorced, supporting my son and myself. My baby's father did
not want the responsibility of a family and convinced me abortion was the best
I was given only partial truths (about fetal development) and was not told
how painful it would be.
The abortion was very hurried -- the clinic had perhaps 30 women gathered for
services that morning. The staff was very uncaring, the doctor was rough and
unconcerned about my distress.
The abortion left me to live under a cloud of depression for 9 years. I am
uncertain how it effected anyone else (we have not spoken of it). I also believe
that I have contracted Herpes Simplex from the procedure.
To deal with the abortion I attended PACE.
The abortion has changed my life because it enabled it have a quick fix for
an immediate crisis but I will live with regret of my choices forever and never
forget who might have been if this choice had not been easily available. I live
with herpes attack.
