I am 17 years old and pregnant.

By anonymous on 29/04/2009
I am 17 years old and pregnant. The only problem is I don’t know who the father is. Two and a half months ago, I got raped. I never told my partner because I was living in fear of how he was going to take it so I kept it to myself..... A few weeks ago my trusted friend told my partner the truth, only I denied it till I was blue in the face, and told him that I wasn’t with him when it happened. It was a lie…I am looking for advice on abortions and if it’s the right thing to do! Maybe I’ve been stupid but I haven’t got any guidance!!!! What do I do????
