I got pregnant from my second sexual experience at age 21. I was so naive. I had a back room abortion in 1965 in New York City. I was told to go alone to an apartment in Harlem. I was given something to make me unconscious and told to go home when I awoke. (I cannot remember how it was administered) and woke up alone. I was in great pain. The next day I returned and again was knocked out for the abortion. So I never saw anyone. Obviously this was a very traumatic experience and every April since then I remember the pain and suffering I underwent. I obviously could have died!
After that trauma I got a diaphragm and never practiced unprotected sex. Thank goodness for Choice for my daughter and all women. I would be happy to share my story. At age 68 I still remember!
