Woman in counseling because of abortion

One woman gives tells her post-abortion story:

My husband had no moral concerns about abortion, and we went to the appointment together. I cried a lot, but every time I mentioned a baby, I was told by my husband, and counsellor, that the reality was, there was no baby. I was told the children I had were more important.

When I saw the Drs who signed my forms they asked me if I was sure. I said no, but they said well as sure as you can be.

I did have an abortion. I was given a leaflet that said that most women are relieved afterwards, but you can expect a bit of depression.

I am now in counselling, having suppressed the memory of the clinic. It now comes back to me as a trauma I can barely survive.
