"At 15 I was raped. I found out I was pregnant 6 weeks later.

Many people tried to convince me to abort the baby growing inside me. My own grandfather gave me the silent treatment when I refused to comply. I had to move 6 hours away to continue school. I knew right away that whether I chose adoption or to raise the child, I would not condemn this child for her father's sins.

I now have a wonderful 8 year old daughter. Does she not deserve life because of the actions that lead to her conception?

I felt like my world was ending, but it turned into something good.
