Rape survivor describes forced abortion

A rape survivor named Cari S wrote about her forced abortion:

“My friend’s dad began molesting her, and me, when we were 12. I became pregnant the second or third time.

I was feeling sick for almost 3 months, so I went to the school nurse.

She must have done a pregnancy test on me. She had me pee in a cup. She told me not to tell anyone I was sick.

The following week, she took me out of class, and said I had a doctor’s appointment. She said, afterwards I would feel much better.

When I got there, all my clothes were taken from me. I guess they didn’t want me to run.

I was scared, but when the doctor said to get on the table, I did.

Three women held me down while the doctor aborted me. I screamed, and cried, and the doctor said, “Shut up, whore.”

I didn’t even consent.

It hurt so bad.

I could hear crying from every room.

I felt as if I were being raped.

I had 2 more abortions after that.”
