Although she had a hard childhood, and had to grow up much faster then she should have, she is grateful for her dad bringing them to the U.S because of the opportunities that are out here.
I asked Gina what the biggest reason was for wanting to get an abortion was and she replied, “I was very young and felt unprepared to bring another life into this world when I didn’t feel my life had even started.

When I asked Gina how she was treated at Planned Parenthood, she said, “It was scary at first going in there because I didn’t know what I wanted yet or how much it would cost or anything.

But, I’ve always asked her and she tells me not to focus on that right now you are only in 9th grade.
