I asked him to go to prom with me. That same night we ended up losing our virginity and it was the night that I got pregnant. So it was super scary, we were both like ‘this is way too much.’ We weren’t even at this level yet and we both decided that we weren't ready for that. I ended up calling Planned Parenthood and setting up an appointment for an abortion. They were like ‘these are all of your choices and we want to make sure this is the right decision for you.’ I remember there was one nurse and she held my hand the whole time. And as I went on and grew up and formed my own opinions, I started to realize why I really supported Planned Parenthood and who they really support - and who they’re really for. Then when I got pregnant again, it was a different part of our lives, and I ended up keeping that baby. So now we have a little boy, his names partner and he’s two. He’s hilarious and weird and perfect. Planned Parenthood isn’t just about abortion. It’s about contraception and really planning your family and really having that say.more
