My body, my choice

So I was 16 when I went into the doctors noticing I had missed a couple periods, and I was worried as I was in a relationship with an older person and neither of us would have been able to provide for a child, nor would we have been able to be emotionally there for one. I was in a terrible headspace, and my mental health wasn’t great. Anyway, my doctor told me I was pregnant, possibly around 9 weeks, and that I had to make a choice on whether I was to keep it, or abort. I weighed up my options and when I finally came to the decision my doctor told me I was selfish, and foolish for aborting, and even told me I was going to be judged by God…
