The Texas Abortion Law Would Have Forced Me to Have My Father’s Baby

I had bought my high school graduation dress earlier in the year. We were required to wear white. It was beautiful. I looked forward to wearing it.

Right before graduation, I tried on my dress for a fitting and suddenly it was way too tight. This did not make any sense to me. None of my habits had changed. I could not figure out how I had gained so much weight so rapidly. My mom was angry and blamed me. See, it turns out it was not my fault.

I was actually pregnant with my father’s baby. He had raped me. I was a victim of incest. I was 17.

I had just graduated from high school with honors, and I was headed off to a prestigious private university. I had almost made it out of my parents’ house of horrors and now this. I could not have a baby.

I’m going to be very blunt about this. I dislike children. They are sticky, loud, and produce various substances from every orifice of their bodies. For me, having a child sounds like my worst nightmare. I know for a fact that if I ever got pregnant, I would go for an abortion as soon as I could. That’s why Texas’s new six-week abortion law both scares and insults me, especially as an autistic.
