I have a baby when I was 18 w/ my high school sweetheart. Things turned ugly & his true colors came out when he found out I was pregnant. He and his family scared me into not telling my parents. All my life, I had never agreed w/ abortion. In middle school & high school conversations that is... so i didnt know much about it, nor was I old enough to REALLY get the concept of it all. So my bf & his mom forced me to go try to get a judicial bypass for an abortion, & it was very overwhelming. They threatened me, and of course had me terrified of my own loving, christian family who always supported me. I actually went with him to the court house to try & get one. (a pass for an underaged person to have an abortion, i was 17 when pregnant) I remember sitting there.. & the lady said well hello, do you know what you are really doing here? when she asked that i almost threw up i was so disgusted with myself. I looked right at my bf, walked out and went to my car.
he of course followed me, yelling at me, threatening me, saying he was going to call my mom and tell her if i didnt go back in and what not, but i kept walking.
I told my mom, had my first daughter at the age of 18 over my high school spring break. My parents had me raise her, all myself, of course w/ their help, but i was never out late at nights, never left her over night, never went to parties. i was no longer a child, i was a mother.
it was rough, but it was the best decision of my life to have this child. I know lots of people who have had abortions that do not agree w/ them were stuck in my situation, and just took the other way. it happens all the time. They need POSITIVE help.
i think i could be that positive help! i now am pregnant w/ my third child, and married to a wonderful man! Things really can work out!
(this isnt directed for those who agree w/ abortion & will argue about abortion being okay to them, that is totally fine.. but is not what this post is for!!,..its for those who feel abortion is the only way out, not just an option)
for my question,
Do you think taking a stand on something like this would really help others? Or just add to the crazy abortion talk?
