For example, Anas is a 53-year old woman who is currently working with prisoners who have gone through abortion trauma. Through this she reflects on the pain that her own abortion brought her at 19years old, “But after the procedure, she says, strange feelings washed over her. I remember having evil thoughts, about hurting children, she said. It was like I'd done the worst thing I could possibly do.

Consequently as a result of this, her mother passed away. * Overall, ‘Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board’ was to blame as they accepted the fact that they should have maybe reviewed their procedures earlier or trained their nurses better. As a result of the lack of medical intervention, they agreed to pay the family a fee of £1000 in total for compensation * I do however feel it is inevitable to say whether the incident could have been prevented or not.

When Doctors and Scientists wanted to find out more about the cells Henrietta’s children were then used in research without their consent.
