She Decides What She Reveals

Your friend has a right to privacy. Like with any medical procedure, what took place in the operation room was very personal. The recovery period is also personal. Don’t ask detailed questions about the actual procedure itself. It can come off as casual curiosity rather than genuine care. Furthermore, some of the details may have scarred her and can be difficult to talk about. It’s up to your friend to disclose as much or as little as she wants about her abortion. If you want to know about it, you can do your own research. In fact, that might be useful so you can approach the conversation with more knowledge.
