There are many reasons why women choose not to carry a child. We need to talk about this and also about the fact that women are capable of making their own decisions.

I would have never thought that the topic of abortion is still such a taboo today. Of course, terminating a pregnancy is not something to be taken lightly. It is also clear that nothing to be considered as an opportunity from the beginning. The fact that a miscarriage can be stressful for a long time afterwards and possibly for a lifetime – however understandable the reasons for it may be – is something women talk about time and time again.
