I was 16 when I found out i was pregnant...


"I was 16 when I found out i was pregnant. At first i was scared and didn't know what to do. I told the father and the first thing that he told me was to get an abortion because he didn't have time to raise a baby he had other plans. I cried i have always been against abortion but I sat down and talked to my best friend and she told me it was my choice and either way no one would ever know because at the time no one knew i was pregnant so i thought about it and decided it was best for me and the baby... I still am yet to tell anyone about this because i still feel ashamed and angry at myself but i knew if i had the baby it would grow up without a father, and i was too immature to raise a child i was only 16 i had never had a job.. So when i think about it i just remind myself it was for the best." —anonymous
