I am a 29 year old woman from New Zealand. I’m feeling grateful and relieved today, because I’ve successfully completed the process to surgically end my unwanted pregnancy.
feeling gratitude for my supportive friend, who dropped me off/picked me up.
feeling gratitude for the decriminalization of abortion in NZ (2020 updated the old law)
feeling gratitude for the awesome nursing staff who treated me with dignity and kindness
feeling relieved because my life is mine, mine alone , and my choices were respected.
this all means a lot to me.
