  • Drama not for my Mama

    I'm 17 and my period is late. I'm very worried. I haven't taken a home pregnancy test, but will soon. My boyfriend and I have been together for 2 years. My parents hate him. I work and go to school. If I were to be pregnant abortion is my choice. However, I've read so much online about it being the worst possible option. I don't want to kill an innocent child sent to me by God, but if I bring it into this world it won't have any of the resources it needs. If the test is positive either way I have to leave home. My parents will be furious so I don't want them to even find out. I want to keep going to school and working and making as much as I can, but it would be easy for them to find me. They could go to my school or work and I would be there. Also, all my paperwork and social security would be left behind and impossible for me to accomplish anything. At home I'm very blessed, I have a warm bed, food, a phone, a car, and this laptop that is mine. My parents help me with everything. They were going to help me with college and my own place next year when I move out. But this would take us back in our relationship and there's no way they would help me. My boyfriend has his own place and if I do leave he wants to go with him, but I'm not sure if I want to take that step. We're in this because of us. I have several friends I could stay with but my parents would look there first. I also don't want to get them in trouble. If this test turns out positive I really have ruined my life. I'm so scared and afraid. I'm not ready for this.

    RE: Drama not for my Mama

    Hello there,

    Thank you for reaching out to us during this scary time. It sounds like you are in a very overwhelming situation. It sounds like you have read many things online but have not talked to a medical professional or taken a pregnancy test yet. Just to let you know, there are lots of resources out there if you do need help. Planned Parenthood is one organization that might be able to give you some information on what your rights are as a pregnant teen. Their number is 1-800-230-7526. If you call that number you will be automatically routed to the Planned Parenthood nearest to you. It sounds like you have a lot of important decision to make and that you are trying to face them head on.

    It also sounds like you are very concerned for your future and relationship with your parents and boyfriend. You have every right to feel safe in your own home. It sounds like you have a good support system at home, but are afraid of how your parents will react. If you’d like, you could contact us and we could discuss what options you have available. We are here to provide non-judgmental, confidential and anonymous support.
