I was 16 when I had an abortion...

“I was 16 when I had an abortion. The pregnancy was from an abusive and manipulative boy, who was older than me. My body felt strange one day about a week from my encounter with him, and I was so scared, so I told a friend and she told me to tell my mom. But I couldn’t, and she would be disappointed in me, and I was determined to get her approval. So, I got an abortion, and it was one of the best things I could have done for my life. It was really sad and I felt empty for a while, but I knew that it was for my betterment.” —Anonymous
