I had an abortion before google really was a thing. The internet did exist, but it could be quite hard to search for what you needed then. I was able to find a clinic online, but didn't really know much about what went on. I knew I had gotten pregnant while taking the pill. It wasn't a discussion. I was engaged at the time and he said that he wasn't "having a wedding with a baby on the way." So he drove me to the clinic where I was given ibuprofen and lidocaine injection. I was never offered any sort of anaesthetic or sedation. It hurt so much even when the doctor inserted the speculum. Rather than be compassionate, the doctor just looked over and said, if you keep screaming I'm going to stop. Do you want me to stop? (I later got anxious after seeing another doctor years later who kind of looked like him). Afterwards, I later threw up. The next day I could barely walk. All my muscles hurt from me clenching my legs together. The pain was horrid.
