I am 18 and pregnant again

I am 18 years old, I had an abortion for the first time when I was 17 and it was very painful, I couldn't sleep for almost 2 days but after that I was better.
I thinking that what I did was right but what hurts most is when it comes up in class where the english teacher asks learners to give a speech and their topic is about abortion and teenage pregnancy, it really hurts me.
This year I am 18 and pregnant again and I am also thinking of getting rid of this baby again and the reason is because I don't want to disappoint my mom. She has promised me many things, she said when I turn 21 she will give me a big birthday party. Even my sisters told me the same thing so I am thinking of having a second abortion but now I am scared because I don't want to feel the same pain I felt before... I am 9 weeks pregnant.
