Post-Abortive teen whose boyfriend commanded “get rid of it!” wishes someone had given her advice

By Sarah Terzo

From Lisa, a teen who had an abortion and was interviewed:

“Q: So did anyone give you any advice, did anyone say, “You should do this” or…?

L: Well, no, I wish they had done! I wish they’d said! The only person that was giving me advice was [the boyfriend] “Get rid of it!” “Get rid of it!”
