I felt intimated and scared to go into the clinic. I felt judged and uncomfortable. Not a nice feeling at all.
If it was my first appointment I probably wouldn’t have come in. I had to phone a family member as I didn’t want to walk past.
A lot of protestors, felt extremely intimidated & suffering from severe anxiety & depression already. These people do not help.
I feel that they do not understand how hard it is to make this decision and their presence makes it so much harder.
When arriving people were outside with signs it made me scared to come in and I was physically shaking. They shouldn’t be allowed to stand outside and people to be made to feel like this.
Having leaflets shoved in my face disregarding a much-thought about decision and being told I’d be ‘prayed for’ is an invasion of privacy in my view tantamount to harassment
I am in a total state, heart pounding. Total disgrace that someone has just started harassing me about abortion. Someone needs to stop this now.
They left a poor girl in tears after speaking to her. I told them it was none of their business. This is extremely upsetting for everyone after having to make such a difficult decision.
