Woman describes crying during and after her abortion

In a pro-choice book, a woman who traveled from Ireland to England to have an abortion says:

“I spent that night in the clinic being checked on by nurses and crying a lot. I no longer had to hold it together. I had got to the UK… The third night was spent in the B&B and I knew I had to get all of my crying over and done with before I got home. As I shared my bedroom with my three younger sisters.”

Despite appearing in a pro-choice book, this woman’s abortion doesn’t sound very empowering.
