Skye's Story
Do I have a choice?

Hi my name is Skye and I am 14 years old. My birthday is Aug.10th and I will be 15. I never thought I would have a baby before my 15th birthday and now I am going to have a baby.

My Grandmother wants me to get an abortion and my boyfriend and I don't want to. The reason I am having a problem with my Grandmother is because she is the one who takes care of me. My mother doesn't want me to get an abortion and wants me to live with her and her Husband, which there is a long story behind him which I choose not to talk about. I don't want to live with my Mother and I don't want to get an abortion. I have somewhere else to live but I need to get through this first to know where I'll stay.

Do I have a say so in this?
