The Ultimate Sacrifice

StandUpGirl Ashley Bridges

A 24-year old mother, Ashley Bridges, made the ultimate sacrifice for her unborn baby when she denied life-saving chemotherapy treatment for bone cancer. Bone cancer accounts for less than 1% of all cancers, and cancer in young adults is extremely rare. In the United States, 2,300 new cases of bone cancer are diagnosed each year.

Bridges was only 10-weeks pregnant with her daughter Paisley when she found out about her diagnosis. Her doctors recommended that she begin chemotherapy immediately. However, in her case, this would mean ending the life of her unborn baby. Bridges said, “There’s no way I could kill a healthy baby because I’m sick.”

I Was Raped At 13, I Became Pregnant!

Dunlap 400I was Raped at 13, I became pregnant, the baby miscarried, but I would have loved him anyway.
My story, for His Glory . . . .  Please be aware there are parts that I have never before told. God is giving me a voice and strength to tell more as He helps me process through parts that I've kept hidden.   It's in the truth that God sets us free.  

When I was 13 I had a best friend.  She and I did everything and went everywhere together.  Our lives pretty much revolved around our friendship and youth group.  We were inseparable.  If I wasn't at her house, she was at my house.  Her mom had her baby brother when we were in 7th grade and we pretty much "mothered" that little baby boy.

Trying To Be Logical

StandUpGirl my boyfriend

Hi Becky. I've searched for advice from many sources and no one has answered back. I desperately need some help and I think that you're the right person to talk to about it. I am 4 months pregnant. My boyfriend and I have been together a very long time. But, I'm finishing up high school, and he is moving an hour away for college. We want to travel. We want to experience life and THEN, when we are financially stable and ready, have children. I'm 16 and he is 17. I do online schooling and am graduating two years early, and he got his GED, and went straight to college. So as you can tell, we aren't average teenagers.

Without Him We Are Nothing!

Hello. I just wanted to shared a little bit of my story. I got pregnant when I was 15 years old, and I gave birth to my son when I was 16 years old. Right now I am 24 and I have a 7 year old boy. I'm going to have to say that I guess I always looked for something out side my house, I always felt that something was missing, I didn't know what, but I always felt something was empty. And I tried to find it on my friend, boyfriend. I don't know what I was thinking but I wanted to get pregnant.

Alone At 38 And Pregnant!

StandUpGirl misty and mia

First, I would just like to thank you for reading my story.  Although it may be like many of the stories, you have heard, it is my life and without, my story would have had a very different ending.
It was very different for me to find myself alone again at such a late stage of life…38 and pregnant.  My daughter’s father and I were together for around 3 years.  At first he seemed excited about the pregnancy but then he decided that he was too old to have any children and he left our picture.

If I Can Do It You Can

Hi Becky,

I’m writing to day to hopefully inspire one girl, somewhere. I found out I was pregnant a little after i turned 17. I was a run away and heavily addicted to drugs. When i found out i cried for hours and when i told the father of my baby i was pregnant he said "take care of it" as in...get an abortion. I was mortified. That word in my head was not realistic, it sickened me to hear that from someone i cared so much about. I moved back home and stopped all drug use and started researching my options.

You Can Still Achieve Your Goals!

Hi everyone. I am 18 years of age and I would like to share my story with you. My boyfriend and I have been together for almost 3 years and throughout our relationship we have talked about having a family together as most couples do. My story begins here. I have PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome)- This is where there are multiple cysts on your ovaries and they cause irregular periods and it is harder to get pregnant and you are placed on birth control pills to help shrink the cysts and regularize your period. I was attending university at the time and also working for the Christmas holidays last year December and on New Year's Eve and New Years' Day I started experiencing real bad pelvic cramps and plus I had the flu really bad with fever and body pains.

Life Is Not Always Perfect

StandUpGirl mom pushing stroller in sun

Dear Becky-

All of these girls need to know life is not always perfect and things happen for a reason. We may not know why at first,, but someday we will know. All teen moms are not bad, even though the media makes it look that way. I got pregnant at 14 and had a beautiful baby boy, that was 18 years ago. It was hard, I'm not going to lie, but I finished school, married his dad and we are still together with not only our boy, but also a beautiful 13 year old girl.

Jase And Missy Robertson Of Duck Dynasty: Stay A Virgin Until Marriage

Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson went viral earlier this year when he talked about his views, asking America about abortion, “What in the world happened to us?”

Robertson said at the time: “Listen, from the time you started inside your mother’s womb, Thomas Jefferson had it right, you have the God-given right to life for crying out loud. You’re this long (pointing to his finger). You’re a week old inside your mother. They suck you out of there when you’re about like that (point to finger again). You wouldn’t be here tonight!”

My Daughter Is My Pride And Joy!

StandUpGirl mother in flowers with baby

My daughter is my pride and joy. I think its import to tell you that I am PROUD of my daughter—and I had her when I was 17. I found out I was pregnant two weeks into my senior year of high school. This was not the senior year I had envisioned for myself. I was so scared. I felt alone and was terrified to tell anyone. I was very active in my school and I was well known. I thought everyone would be so disappointed and not want anything to do with me. I thought I would be deserted and left to fend for myself.
