I got pregnant at 17 and knew for sure I wasn’t keeping the baby. It was the summer and I just got done with my junior year of high school. I had a lot I still wanted to do with my life and school wise I wasn’t even done with high school.

The father who I thought loved me abandoned me and accused me of sleeping with other guys and he has another girlfriend who started spreading lies about me. I continued to be the mature one in the situation and keep my head up high.

I couldn’t afford to pay for the abortion at the time but my mom was supportive of my decision and help me as best as she could. I don’t regret my decision, although people were pressuring me, I would never bring a child in the world if I couldn’t take care of him or her. Feel no regret for your choice, you’re the one that has to live with it.
