Example text

My friends were directed to a waiting room downstairs. I sat in the waiting room approximately two hours talking with girls having appointments also. Then a counsellor came and took me to an office where I was given pills and relaxed. We talked about the abortion procedure, post-operative feelings, complications, my feelings and fears, for about an hour. Then she took me upstairs again where I had the operation in fifteen minutes, rested a half hour and went home. The counseling was excellent and she stayed with me through everything, even assisting the physician.

I know I should have thought of that a long time ago, but unfortunately I didn't stop to think about anyone but myself. Some people say that sooner or later I'll regret having had an abortion, but I know that if I had gone through with my pregnancy there would have been much, much more to regret. Now I can start over, a much wiser and I hope, more mature person. So many girls don't get a second chance. Thank you for mine. H.

She thought our old-fashioned kitchen was the height of style, and she had never tasted some of the ordinary foods we had.
