窶廬 remember how anguished I was.  First I was in denial that my condition was so grave that I needed an abortion to save my life (I had pre-eclampsia). I remember feeling, this is not what a mother does (put herself before her child). I remember struggling, and my heart breaking. This was my first planned pregnancy, a year after I was married, and I was so overjoyed at being pregnant. I remember not believing the doctors who told me that ending the pregnancy would be necessary to save my life. I remember bargaining. But my condiiton was so severe, my kidneys began shutting down, and I made the hardest decision of my life.窶 -Susan #ReflectionsOnRoe #1in3
窶彝eflecting on that time, I felt relief that I had access to care. I didn't know what to do or how to go about it, so it was a huge relief to know that I had access to people who could help me. All of the nurses were kind and so supportive, it surprised me, but it made it easier to accept that this was the best choice for us. Everyone we spoke to were patient and answered every question we had, including the ones from our family members that we didn't know how to answer. It made a difference!窶 -Noemi #Reflectionsonroe #1in3
窶弋he fear of maybe not being able to get one and what I would do if that were the case to be honest is how I felt. With my physical health being poor and my mental health as well, I would have probably committed suicide. I had so many undiagnosed issues and now those diagnosed issues are helping medical science in fascinating ways that it all seems to have come full circle and makes sense the abnormalities in both pregnancies, the pregnancies and their difficulties it all makes sense. If I had given up and committed suicide, it would not have come full circle. Also, I have would have missed out on life with my husband, our animals and my family which has recently reconciled.窶 -Rachel #ReflectionsOnRoe #1in3
窶廬 remember most clearly that I was 100% confident in my decision, no hesitation, and very very grateful that I had somewhere to go. I was a college freshman, and I was nowhere near ready to be a parent. I was able to really consider my own feelings about my decision because I didn't have to worry about driving to another state to find a clinic or about violence and harassment once I got there. I remember feeling sad, but those feelings happened alongside much stronger feelings of certainty and huge relief that I was in control of my decision.窶 -Hope #ReflectionsOnRoe #1in3
窶弋here are so many gray areas when it comes to abortion. I chose abortion due to a severe prenatal diagnosis. Many have told me 窶弸ou should have been an exception to the law.窶 But the moment you add exceptions is the moment you put the choice back into someone else窶冱 hands. Then it窶冱 up to your health care provider to decide if your diagnosis is considered 窶徭evere enough窶 to be granted permission to get the care you need. The only way to protect a woman in my situation is to give all women complete autonomy of their reproductive rights.窶 -Hadleigh #ReflectionsOnRoe #1in3
窶廴y strongest memory is sitting on my bed talking to my boyfriend about our pregnancy and my wish to have an abortion. We were both crying because we envisioned raising a family together, but not at 18 and 19 years old. We felt that we did not have the tools or support system to parent at that time. We held each other, knowing I made the right decision.窶 -Kristine #ReflectionsOnRoe #1in3
