I was only 15

by Anonymous

I was a freshman in high school and dating the same boy that I had been with for years. He was my first kiss, my first love, my first everything.

I went to a place to confirm I was pregnant, and I decided I wanted an abortion. They tried to convince me to keep the baby and that I would be at good mother at just 15. They told me they would help me, and that my boyfriend and I should get married and raise our child. Having a child and being a mother at 15 was not what I wanted.

A week later I drove to a clinic with my father, grandmother and boyfriend to have an abortion. I am so thankful I had that option! #ShoutYourAbortion
