It was last year, the beginning of June...

March 1, 2012

"It was last year, the  beginning of June, two months before my seventeenth birthday, and I found out I was  pregnant. I was very scared  and worried what my parents would think once they  had found out their only daughter was pregnant. I ended up having a friend tell  my mother about the pregnancy; it broke her heart. She was leaning toward me getting an abortion, but at first, I was totally against it.  I had thought if I got an  abortion I would regret it the rest of my life. The  thought of an abortion became a lot easier after my mother and cousin talked to me about their abortions in the past. I  put a lot of  thought  into it, and realized I wasn't ready to bring a child into this world. My child would have been due in  February, and I really don't regret what I have done. It just proves I wasn't  ready to bring a child into this world yet."  —Courtney
