As a seventeen-year-old high school student, I have had many influences around me to help shape my thoughts on abortion and my generation’s sex culture. I have come to a realization that when someone has an abortion or sex, it’s nobody’s damn business. My life has always been influenced by the world around me, whether I like it or not. I don’t know if that can be said for everyone, but I have found that being open-minded doesn’t have to change what I already believe. As a seventeen-year-old senior in high school, I allow myself to listen to different perspectives because it brings me more knowledge of the people and world around me, and this often times allows me to share my truths. When I open up the conversation about abortion to friends, family, or even strangers, I often face a lot of harsh criticism, but I’ve learned that all I can do when I talk to someone with different opinions is listen.
