“I come here for many reasons including mental health counselling. At one point I tried to commit suicide by hanging myself so when someone told me about this place I came here and felt relieved. I can discuss all those issues which I am not able to share with anybody else.”

“No, I am not at all hesitant to talk about my abortions. I have had around twenty abortions till now and I am tired and irritated. I told my mother-in-law if I would have been operated on to prevent pregnancies then I wouldn't have to suffer so much.”
30-year-old Laxmi from New Delhi, India
“I came to know that I am pregnant with a baby two months ago and I got an abortion last month. An Asha worker named Bina whom I am in touch with told me about this place and she brought me to this Umeed ki Kiran (MSF) clinic. I received proper treatment from this place starting from medicines to receiving money for my operation, for my ultrasound and even my transport.”
