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.
