Kia ora. I’m Justine Whitfield.
I’m 47 years old and the mother of two mostly grown children. I work as an accountant in aviation and I spent many years as a social researcher. As both a chartered accountant and a researcher, I am bound by strict professional codes of ethics. I also have a personal understanding of this topic. As a seventeen year old, I terminated a pregnancy. I did not regret this but I understand abortion is not always a simple decision.

The late Celia Lashlie once wrote to me encouraging me with an idea I had for a project similar to this. I was too busy to pursue it. Thank you for that support, Celia — I am finally doing something about it.
My thanks also to Stephanie Robertson for listening to my story when I was finally ready to tell it.
