It was extremely painful; I cried out the whole time
I came to have an abortion when I was 16 because I was unmarried and the father of the baby was out of the picture. I was scared and confused. I wasn't sure if abortion was the right answer for me. When I told my mom I was pregnant, SHE made the decision for me and made it clear that I would have to leave home. She said I would forget about it, and everything would be okay.
She's my mom, I believed her.
