From one woman who had an abortion:
“You could hear crying in the holding room… crying of women who already had the abortion. I remember the sounds, the smells, the suction… You could hear the sound of the motor of the pump, the suction when the baby was being withdrawn, the clinking of the utensils.…
[She recalls] this hurts so bad [and then thought] this is what I get, of course it’s going to hurt… Look what I’m doing… I just remember the crying… So many people crying.”
Only her husband and eldest son know about her two abortions which he had in high school. At the time of the quote, she was 35.

One tragic suicide was that of an Australian model and TV star Charlotte Dawson, after a long battle with depression, originally triggered by an abortion back in 1999. According to news stories, it was decided that Dawson should abort her first child with Olympic swimmer husband Scott Miller because her due date coincided with the 2000 summer Olympics and (because)Miller was so focused on his own pursuits that a child was not welcome in the picture at the time. Dawson says they planned to try to have children later, but the marriage broke up shortly afterwards and she ultimately died without living children.
The Daily Telegraph reported:
“But friends believe she had never really gotten over her marriage to Miller, which ended in divorce after only a year. In her tell-all autobiography ‘Air Kiss And Tell,’ she revealed she had an abortion because the pregnancy would interfere with Miller’s preparation for the 2000 Olympics — and blamed that for the start of her long battle with depression.”
The second case reported in the Daily Mail relates to an Oxford student who committed suicide following the break up of her relationship with her boyfriend. The report however cites the torment she suffered following an abortion.
