If abortion was illegal at the time you wanted one, what would you have done?

(I'm not including abortions that were done for health reasons.)

I probably would have done something drastic to cause a miscarriage.

 I have never had one BUT if it was illegal now and I needed one I suppose I would go to another country to have it done. I guess, IDK.

It was illegal when I had mine.

Some clinics had 'back areas' for these kind of things. You went in, made up a name, handed over cash and had the procedure and were gicen a script for antibiotics for "a UTI". You didn't receive proper care, but it was all you could do.

Women with resources were always able to get abortions even when it was illegal.
