When I was 18, my boyfriend of 2 years and I had just broken up. We were in that in-between phase between breaking up and moving out. It was in this time that I found out I was pregnant. I knew I was too young and in no position to be a good mom, and I absolutely did not want anything to tie me to this guy for the rest of my life. To me it was never a baby. It wasn’t a person. It was a medical problem I needed to take care of. I do not feel shame. Or guilt. I know I made the right choice for me.
