Barbara’s Story

I was date raped while traveling across the country and didn’t realize I hadn’t had a period. After the positive pregnancy test, I planned a trip to visit some friends in Boston. The clinic was fantastic! Counseling before, kindness all the way through and solidarity of sisters in the various waiting and recovery rooms. The second time was with my boyfriend. The doctor prescribed condoms and they failed. We both were not ready to have a child. The doctor was unkind and judgmental, even though he prescribed the form of bc! He and his nurse shamed me, it was horrible. I later moved to a different state, and have never regretted either event. I have two fabulous feminist sons with my husband of 34 years.
