“I was supposed to go back for a checkup in two weeks to ensure all the tissue had been passed, but because the clinic was understaffed, they had to schedule my follow-up appointment for three weeks later. Two weeks to the day after I had the abortion, I hemorrhaged. I went to the ER where I had to be given a blood transfusion. They called in a team and I had an emergency D&C at about 4 a.m. and woke up in the ICU just before 7 a.m.
“I would have died if I hadn’t received such quick care, and I’m extremely grateful to the OB-GYN and the team of nurses. Despite the complications, I have never regretted terminating that pregnancy.”
