How did you come to have the abortion(s) and who was involved?

How would you describe your abortion(s)?
“I remember the noise of the suction machine. I remember crying all the way home. I remember being the first to get up and leave.”
How did your abortion(s) affect you and others?
“Bitterness, hate, rage.”
How do you think your abortion(s) changed your life?
“Now, then or the years in between? I was so guilty, and dysfunctionally unhealthy. I tried to end the relationships I was in. Therefore, we continued dating and 2 years later found ourselves pregnant again. We now have a daughter.
“This is extremely difficult for me.”
