From one woman who had an abortion:
“I just got a surgical abortion yesterday at 10 weeks 3 days. I didn’t have a driver so I couldn’t be sedated. The doc did give me some kind of numbing shot in my cervix but I’m not sure it did anything for me.
From the start, inserting the speculum, the shot, and the procedure itself was one of the most painful experiences I’ve ever had. The doc had to continually tell me to stop clenching my butt and to keep my legs wide (I did not know I was doing those things until he would tell me I was). I can’t describe the pain, the nurse/assistant was holding my hands and reminding me to breathe. I’m almost in tears thinking of what I went through. Near the end I broke down crying. I had to choke down tears walking into the room with the other ladies who have not gone yet (I was first). I felt so bad that a younger girl saw me and started crying herself. They wouldn’t even give me a Tylenol when I asked.”
She says she does not regret her abortion
