In Thembisa’s’s home, sexual and
reproductive health was a topic that
was never discussed.
When her parents found out she was pregnant, she felt humiliated by being labelled promiscuous; she loved her partner dearly and was always faithful to him.
At 35 years old, Thembisa was dedicated to her career and after a discussion with her partner, they decided that they didn’t want children but were worried that an abortion could be very dangerous and potentially fatal. When they found Marie Stopes, they were reassured that the organisation’s clinics specialised in safe abortion. Thembisa’s procedure was performed by a registered professional and she knew she was in good hands. Everything went smoothly. Thembisa had an IUD fitted to prevent any further unplanned pregnancies.
