Why I’m Pro-Life

I’m in class through my online schooling at Bridges Virtual Academy called Project Based Learning. I love this class for so many reasons, and one of those reasons is because I’m given the opportunity to express myself, share my story, and show why I believe what I believe.

So let me start way back with a story that I’ve blogged about many times…

At sixteen years old, I found out I was pregnant. I knew from the very beginning, I wanted to keep him, and I wanted to be his mom. I grew up christian and always felt passionately against the idea of abortion. Adoption is wonderful, but I didn’t feel like that was the right choice for me.


At my very first doctor’s appointment I was about a month and a half pregnant, and I heart my baby’s heart beating for the first time. At that point, I could’ve made a decision to end that beating heart. My choice to have sex could have led to life of someone else ending, and that’s not okay.

My belly continued to grow, and everyone at school could tell I was pregnant. Admitting to my friends that had begged me earlier to be safe that I wasn’t was far from easy. Most of them have abandoned me at this point, but I know that someday I will find a new set of wonderful mom friends that offer parenting advice and encourage me the way that my old friends never did.


Then I met him. I met the boy who I loved more than an anyone I ever have. I met the boy who would someday call me momma. I met the boy that gave me the best reason to wake up every morning.

And tomorrow that reason will be four months old. I look at him when he’s acting all silly, and I know that getting an abortion would eliminate the most beautiful thing out of my life. I know that if I got an abortion the world wouldn’t get to see him smile or laugh. If I got an abortion, Jayce could never brighten my world. Jayce would never have had the opportunity to do anything because I would have changed that for my own selfish reasons.


I chose life because the the smiley boy above wouldn’t be in this world if I didn’t…

and I thank God every day that I made that decision.
