I was raped when I was 20 years old.
I was in the middle of a Uni course and all of a sudden my life was turned upside down. I was pregnant in a most horrible way, but in all the feelings of self-loathing that come with being raped, I couldn’t abort the baby.
The thought that kept going around my head was that it wasn’t the baby’s fault.
So I went through with the pregnancy and had a baby girl. It has taken me many years to get where I am today, and I am still thankful that I don’t have the extra burden of an abortion on my conscience.
