A woman who had a medical (induced with medication) abortion at 13 weeks describes her experience:
“The nurses showed us to a private room where I was told to take off my bottom half and lay in the bed. When she returned she inserted some tablets into my vagina and one up my back passage to stop infection. Although this was uncomfortable it did not hurt and I felt fine. I didn’t know what to expect after that. I was told to lie down for an hour to let the tablets absorb.
After the tablets, she had terrible cramps and went into bathroom and felt “gush” of blood and “water” and the baby fell out.
“My baby. It was tiny but prefectly formed. I studied it for some time. I don’t know why I did this because it is all I can think about now. It had a perfect little face, little arms, legs, hands, It skin was sort of see through and I could see its tiny little ribs. It was lying just as you would imagine a baby to lie, one little arm next to its head. It just looked like it was asleep, tiny and peaceful.
I felt sick and couldn’t stop shaking. That was when the reality of what I had done hit me. I killed my baby. That little human will never grow up, never laugh, never smile, never run about and play, never learn and all because of me.
I never imagined it would look like a baby. Despite having spent hours looking at pictures on the internet of babies at 13 weeks I couldnt conjure up an image in my head of what it would actually look like.
I said I was sorry to it and that I loved it. I felt stupid and evil, my baby was lying there dead because I want to go to university and we can’t afford to bring it up. That seemed like the most pathetic excuse for the death of my baby….
I thought abortion was the right choice for me, but I didn’t realise it would affect me the way it has. I haven’t been able to stop crying and all I see is that baby.”
