I was living abroad and had been raped. I was 20, I didn’t have money, stability, or the ability to take care of a kid – even a kid that I’d wanted, let alone one I didn’t. I didn’t have to think twice when I saw the results of the pregnancy test – I knew an abortion would be the best thing for me. I had already booked flights back to the UK & was able to get it done here medically. Walking out the clinic after I’d taken the second pills was the biggest relief of my life – it gave me control back at a time I had little. I could finish my degree. I could choose my own path in life. I could do what I knew was best for me. But I also felt so angry at the presence and interference of protestors while I was at the clinic – not only were they harassing women who went in, but they also maliciously directed mothers with young babies (who were looking for a nearby clinic) into the surgery to shame/embarrass people inside. It stoked a fire in me that the right to abortion on request needs to be established.
