I’m 16 and scared. I don’t ever want a baby inside of me. I don’t ever want another human to torture me for nine months, mutilate my body, fuck up my internal chemistry, make me depressed, and then exit with excruciating pain. I don’t want shit happening to deprive me of education and subsequently work, romantic partnership and a future. I’m scared that people will view me as a murderer just because I don’t want my future ruined and a baby to suffer in horrible conditions waiting for an adoption.
There is a simple solution: don’t get pregnant. Start birth control NOW and make sure your partner uses a condom EVERY TIME. The very moment you can get sterilized, RUN to the hospital.
Please do everything you can to prevent some unfortunate person from finding themselves in your very unwelcoming womb.
And make sure you hug your mother for going through the trouble to give you life. You are very fortunate that she placed you above herself, that she wanted you to have the opportunity to seek an education, find work, experience a romantic partnership, and have a future.
