HIV+ and 19 years old

When I was with my daughters father I was 19 and he was only 17. I was recently diagnosed with HIV. We were excited when we found out I was pregnant but our families were NOT! I was naive and believed them when they said the baby would die or be very sick. So I decided on abortion. I don’t regret it even though now I know they had no clue what they were talking about, 2 years after the abortion I had a beautiful healthy baby girl who is 18 today. It’s YOUR BODY, YOUR CHOICE. And you should never be ashamed of choosing what’s right for YOU.

Remember that our stories are ours to tell. We’d love to hear your story too!
