Woman raped and left to deal with consequences

4 Feb

1) Mother of one pregnant and considering natural abortion

I was taken advantage of by a man much bigger than me so I closed my eyes & waited for it to be over. I could not go through another pregnancy right now I’m not financially stable nor am I ready for another baby especially when it was never wanted or intended.
