Young women pressured to abort by parents

From a young woman who was pressured by her parents to have an abortion:

“ok yeah i also dont believe in abortions but seein i was so young i didn’t have a say in it, my parents set it all up and i just went along with it, i was so young i only had just turned 17 but gee calling me a murderer before a baby has a heart beat is kinda stupid seeing the baby couldn’t be killed because the baby neither had a heart or brain, i can’t believe how childish people can be, its not them that had to go through the abortion it was hard for me because in those 7 weeks i got attached to it and i had to give it up something that i have wanted, i wanted to have the baby i would have loved it, but i was young, James was young and we couldn’t handle having a baby.”

but seein i was so young i didn’t have a say in it” JivinJehoshaphat  February 16, 2006

At 7 weeks, her baby had a heartbeat, and a brain that was giving off brain waves.  (New research shows that the heart may start beating as early as 16 days after conception)
