My girlfriend and I are both 17, she got pregnant recently, but we live in a state where abortion is illegal. The other day she started bleeding and we went to the doctor and were told she was miscarrying. I think she induced abortion. She'd always been rly pro choice but I never thought she'd try something like that. What makes me think that is that they found stuff in her system that suggests an abortafaceint drug. What do I do?
Sadly, abortion is legal in every state. Even sadder is that your girlfriend likely killed the child you both brought into this world. What you must never forget is that your son or daughter was once alive – just as alive as you are. 128 fler ord
