I was 18 years old when I took my first pregnancy test. I remember sitting in the passenger seat of my roommate’s car at 2 a.m., tears clouding my vision as we searched for a pharmacy that was still open.

I didn’t tell anyone why I thought I was pregnant, that my then-boyfriend made it a habit to force sex without protection. I wondered if I would have to drop out of college, if I would be trapped in a one-bedroom apartment with him and a child.
