When I was 25 I had a planned pregnancy with my husband. There were no complications. When I was 27, my husband and I were separated and I was in a new relationship. Between 2007 and 2009 I had 2 more pregnancies, neither planned. The first I miscarried and the second was aborted. I thought about the decision and talked about it with my partner. We agreed that we were not in a position to bring another life into our family. The day of the appointment, he stayed home with my daughter who was barely 2 at the time. I was alone in the office, alone in the room, and alone in recovery. I felt alone for years, until a friend I met in 2010 revealed she, too, had an abortion. Now I’m not alone.
