I was raped and became pregnant, what should I do?
Posted on: 06/05/2003
I am 13 and i was raped and i was found pregnant. i do not know the guy.i would like to have an abortion, but i do not want to kill a helpless life, but i am too young to have this baby.Although I have not discussed this with my parents yet, i would like to find a place where i could get an abortion secretly. is there such a place?
You really do need to talk to your parents, or your doctor. I do not know the laws in Canada, but with everything you are struggling with, you need support and someone to help you deal with the rape and pregnancy. There is also a support system available at 1-800-656-hope. I am so sorry!
