    "I was in my final year of A Levels"

    We supported our client with their choice to have a surgical abortion whilst they were studying.

    "Marie Stopes helped me through the whole thing and it was completely my choice to have the abortion at 13 weeks."

    "I am now 19 but was 17 when I found out I was 9 weeks pregnant, I was in my final years of A levels. I had just been through a breakup and it was the scariest experience of my life, but I feel I am able to talk about it now because I shouldn't feel ashamed or guilty.

    "My school was a very elitist grammar school who were incredibly unsympathetic for the most part. It was Marie Stopes who helped me through the whole thing and it was completely my choice to have the abortion at 13 weeks.

    "I am now in a very good place after battling with a lot of bad thoughts and am happy to talk about it in a positive light, it is not something to be ashamed of and should most definitely have more awareness."
