“In 1994 I had been married for two years and I became pregnant. Neither of us thought we wanted children. I didn’t really give myself the chance to consider keeping the pregnancy because my husband was adamant against it. I had an abortion as soon as I could. We lived in rural Kentucky and there were only two abortion clinics in the state. Now there is only one and it has been a battle to keep it open. We drove for 2.5 hours and fought viciously the whole way. We didn’t fight about what was happening but about everything else. Then I went and had the procedure and went home. We are divorced. I don’t have children now and I’ve never had the drive to have children. He didn’t force me in there or twist my arm or anything but we never talked about it and never asked whether we really wanted to do this.” - Natalie is a photographer/visual artist.
