black hair upsetI my name is Katherine and I am 17 years old.

I found out last week, while I was at the E.R. that I was PG (Pregnant). I was there only there for a kidney stone and I thought I was late because of the antibiotics I was on.

I first told my boyfriend, Justin, who I have been dating for over a year and then I told my sister. She’s urged me to tell my mother. I did, and we also told his parents. They both took it really well.


Except —  they are trying to get us married and my mother is telling me I am ruining her life so I should get an abortion.

I know Justin loves me so much. He tells me how much he loves me every day and rubs my belly. We’re against abortion, but our parents and family are not. They just keep pushing and pushing. I don’t think I can handle the guilt.

After Justin and I read some of your stories — I am very scared of abortion and don’t think it is necessary unless my life if at risk. That is a possibility because I have lots of kidney problems and Justin is not willing to lose me over something inside of me. I just can’t believe this has happened to me.

I believe that we can do this, Justin and I can take care of this baby.  But I just dont know what to do.

I am waiting on what the doctors say before we make our decsion. Please give me your opinions. I am sorry this is so boring. I just need a friend and help.

Thank you,
