NZ woman who had abortion as teen - "I wish I had told my parents"

In New Zealand, a woman who had a secret abortion at 16 with her school's help has come forward. She still seems to be pro-choice and thinks if teenagers had to tell their parents they go to the "black market."
She said at the time she had no real comprehension of what she was doing and was only asked by a GP if she was sure about her decision.

"You're naive at that age and choices are very one-dimensional."


Ms Wickham said though she wouldn't change her decision, it had haunted her and she felt great guilt over the lost life.

"When it comes to the time that you become a mother, there's guilt with that."
