Abortion brought back memories of sexual assault

A woman who had been sexually assaulted had an abortion, and commented on how the procedure brought back memories of her sexual abuse:

“I felt very sad after [the abortion], and actually, that triggered my first really big wave of full-on memories of sexual abuse in my childhood.”
