It’s been nearly 10 years since Hila Zeharia had her first abortion, but the 27-year-old, now a mother of three, says she remembers the pain and emotional suffering as though it were yesterday.

“I was 16 years old when I found out I was pregnant, and it was a complete shock,” recalls Zeharia, whose children range in age from seven to 11 months. “I had so much pressure on me, social pressure and pressure from my family; I was not really given a choice.”
