Fumiko's Story

I am pregnant!! and I am in a shock, I didn't plan this, and if I give birth to the child, he or she will not have a father, as it wasn't a result of a long relationship, and this happened although my partner was wearing his condom.

I am a Japanese girl studying English in Australia, I decided to have abortion back in my country, however I am not sure about the laws in Japan. Can you please provide me with information, at the moment I am on the 2nd month of my pregnancy. I am in a panic!!

September 1998
