I tried a few times in my early twenties to request a tubal ligation, and doctors told me again and again that I was too young to decide that I didn't want to have children. "Think of your future husband!" they said.


I had 2 kids and already married and divorced by time I turned 19. I fell in love with the wrong kind of man, he hit me and made me feel awful about myself. I had no intention getting pregnant ever again and when I did I almost went through with the pregnancy.


When I was 16 I was in an abusive relationship with a man about 4 years older than me. I lost my virginity to him, and I got pregnant the first time we had unprotected sex.
