I got pregnant at 17 after being rapedBy anonymous on 08/02/2010
7 years ago at the age of 17 I got pregnant after a rape. At first I was adamant that I was going to keep it, thinking something good could come out of something bad, but then I told my parents and everything changed. They pushed me and pushed me to abort the baby saying it would ruin my life, I'm too young and that I would never cope. I couldn't bring myself to tell them about the rape so had to put up with my mum going on about why I didn't use contraception. When the news started to sink in a little and flashbacks of the rape became to overwhelming I started to hate this "thing" inside of me. I started to feel dirty inside and just wanted it out of me. I thought that it would constantly remind me of the father and what he did instead of my baby, a part of me.
