Maryam ended her pregnancy two years ago
using abortion pills. Her husband supported her. The couple already have a boy
and a girl, and they decided they did not want a third child.

Abortion pills are not easily accessible in Iran due to government
restrictions. Maryam obtained misoprostol through a pharmacist who was
recommended by a friend.
