I was pregnant at the age of 16
How did you come to have the abortion(s) and who was involved?
I was pregnant at the age of 16. Only my boyfriend (now husband) and I knew. I
was staying at my sister’s house and was very nauseated and throwing up. She had
a child at 16 and knew I must be pregnant.
How would you describe your abortion(s)?
Scary, unaware of what really was about to happen. "You’re pregnant now, but
you won’t be when you leave here."
It was a very long time that I was able to forgive myself. Friends and family
could see my depression.
Only after having 3 healthy children has it been easy to deal with. This was
15 years ago.
I’ve come to appreciate life a lot more. I miscarried after that abortion
with my second pregnancy. I believed God was punishing me for the first
