When I was 19, I entered into what turned out to be a very abusive relationship. He beat me, raped me (vaginally and anally), controlled all the money I made, broke into my email accounts and got my friend and family believing I wanted nothing to do with them, and only let me out of the house without him when I was at work. At 20, I found out I was pregnant. When I told him I didn’t want to keep the child (we lived in a rented room in a friend’s house, and couldn’t even afford to take care of ourselves), he said I was a selfish bitch, and he beat me until I miscarried. He refused to use birth control after that, and when my period was late, he would beat me until he was satisfied (either I started my period, or he had what he called “proof” that I miscarried).
