A Letter from Gabrielle
Gabrielle was 18 years old and 5 weeks pregnant when she had a medical abortion. She writes:

“ I went to the clinic and was in the waiting room with my boyfriend, my heart was pounding and my mind was debating with my heart, "should I do this?" My name was called and I was taken into a cold room. I sat there for about 30 minutes alone, I began crying and gathered myself up and decided I had to go through with it.
