I let my mother and older brother convince me to have an abortion.
By anonymous on 01/02/2015I'm 17 years old and found out I was 5 weeks pregnant right before Christmas. Though my boyfriend and I wanted to keep our baby, and his family was supportive, I let my mother and older brother convince me to have an abortion. I did. It's been almost a month and the guilt and sadness are still fresh. My boyfriend hates my family because of them taking away his voice during the whole process.
We had sex two weeks after my abortion, maybe five minutes of it was unprotected, and I'm nervous I might be pregnant again. There's a part of me that's happy because I can give this baby the life I couldn't give my other baby, but then I know I have a whole life ahead of me. It's a very difficult process and time and it doesn't help that no one in my family is willing to talk to me about it.
