Stories from Florida
I had to go to the juvenile courthouse to get a waiver that would allow me to get the abortion without my parents' consent.
I was told by a doctor that it was very unlikely that I could get pregnant without fertility treatments.
It took him 20 minutes to come get me. He was stoned.
It was short, uncomfortable, made me cramp up instantly. But it was over before I realized it.
Everything looked normal until I went in for my 12 week ultrasound.
By then I was 20 weeks-- time was running out.
He was late picking me up at the clinic after the procedure (3.5 hours to be exact) and it was pouring rain. I cried.
It's been about a week. I'm still bleeding, cramping, and I'm still sad.
So anyway, I cried pleading with my son's father the entire way to the clinic
I'm an athlete, popular, intelligent and really nice to everybody and everything.
I know that our baby couldn't guarantee anything between him and me.
I wanted to be a mother so badly, but I was totally unprepared for it.
I didn’t ever press charges because I just knew it would be a big ordeal, and I didn’t want my parents to find out about it.
