When I told one of my friends that I am pregnant, she got upset with me "for letting this happen at your age." She told me that she thinks I should exercise my "right to choice" and have an abortion.
I told her that I have decided to have the baby and that it already has a heartbeat.
She said that "there ain't nothing there that you can call a life" and that obstetricians perform ultrasounds so early in pregnancy to "browbeat and intimidate" women into having babies that they don't want.
