Submitted to Abort73 by a -year-old woman on January 28, 2013.
I was only 13 years old when I met my boyfriend. He was 18 years old. We met at a party. He spiked my drink just to have pleasure with me. Two weeks later, I found out that I was pregnant. I was scared and weak but had to do something. I phoned my boyfriend. He just didn't care. Then I told my mum and dad, knowing that they were going to kill me. But they certainly didn't. They comforted me, but not all the way. So three months later, my boyfriend and I went to a private doctor and aborted the baby. The only reason I aborted my baby was because I didn't want to destroy my studies and my relationship with my parents. I felt so alone and like a stranger. I didn't want to give up my baby. It was all for my family.
