"So I hurtled towards abortion with my mind and body in turmoil, hoping that when it was all over I would wake up and discover that the whole thing had just been a bad dream."
A highly personal and in-depth account of one woman’s experience. A true story.
The experience of abortion drove me to the edge of my sanity and left me hanging on by a fingernail. The road since then has been long and hard. I became pregnant in the early (and, as it would eventuate, the latter) stages of a relationship. We were only together for about 3 months. I met James at a party and we embarked on a fairly intense relationship, spending a lot of time together and talking of plans for the coming months - plans as a couple. He seemed genuine and sincere, though retrospectively, I can see that he wasn’t entirely honest and was less than caring in some of his actions.
