"I had my abortion back in 1974. As an X-ray technologist I was exposed to radium during four separate surgeries. I had just married, and back then births weren't covered by insurance unless you were married 1 full year at time of birth.
Between cost and fear of fetal abnormality due to the radium exposures my husband and I chose to terminate.
I was so lucky not to be faced with finding an abortion provider since it was finally legal. My room-mate in school had an abortion the year before legalization, and she had to just hope for a competent doctor." —Chris
