BBC News

TV presenter Anne Robinson has recalled feeling the "most terrible black doom" after having an abortion the year after they were partially legalised.Robinson spoke of it for the first time in a BBC Two documentary, Abortion On Trial, being shown to mark 50 years since the 1967 Abortion Act.Overall, most of those involved in the programme said the decision to have an abortion was right for them.They argued it was their right to have control over their own body.'Keeping quiet'Speaking ahead of the documentary's broadcast, Robinson questioned why abortion was not more openly talked about."This all has been there for 50 years and we are still hesitant and ashamed," she said.Robinson, who later had one child, said "keeping quiet" about her own experience was "out of the question" when she had asked people to talk about theirs.
