I had an illegal abortion when I was 20, seven years before Roe v. Wade became law.
I was in a seven year abusive relationship that left me hospitalized and with P.T.S.D. I became pregnant with this individual and I knew that I could not keep my pregnancy.
I had my first child when I was only 15 years old, a ninth grader in junior high.
I'm sure my story is like many others. I'm a struggling college student.
I gave birth to my son in 2004—a son who was wanted, planned for, and loved.The deep love I had for my child didn't make the pregnancy an easy one, however. I am a transgender man.
