When I was 16, I went to my brothers house for a visit...


"When I was 16, I went to my brothers house for a visit. I didn't see him for a while because he was a truck driver and I missed hanging out with him. In the middle of the night while I was sleeping in the living room, he came in and raped me.

I knew I was pregnant but I was only 16 and I felt that if I told someone I would have to come to terms with it and that wasn't something I was ready to do. Then came the morning sickness. I knew what it was but my mom noticed I was sick and I told her I was missing periods. She took me to the doctor.

The doctor found out I was pregnant and sent my mom out of the room so that he could tell me. I told him my story. He brought my mom in and I had to tell her. I knew that I didn't want this thing inside of me. There was nothing good that could have come out of it.

I went to an abortion clinic and they explained to me how everything would work. I was offered counseling. And I understood exactly what I was doing and they were very sweet and helpful with understanding what I'm going through. About 3 days later I went back in for the procedure. Removing the fetus was my way of removing him from my life. I know that it happened to me and I have come to terms and I have full forgiveness.

I'm 22 now, I still do not want children for a long time. I own my own house and I am living a

great life. Where I am now may not have been possible had I went through with the birth. I do not regret my decision. ♥" —Brittny
