I am 18, single, pregnant and due next month. I used to study in an all girls catholic college in the Philippines called Assumption College. I was an active student and even participated in the Student Council. I was dedicated to my studies and making a difference in the school. Because they were a Catholic inst_tution, they had "conservative" rules. Once they learned of my pregnancy, they adviced me to leave the school and would accept me back after i give birth. Their reason for "advising" me to terminate my studies in their college was because the catholic school does not want to go through the "SHAME" of having students who commit in premarital s_x. Especially students who were not married. I was enraged by this but i had no choice. A month later, I then transferred to another co-ed university who accepted my condition. I moved to the US in March after my semester and now i'm just waiting for the baby to come out. You have the benefit of living in a country who have people who are more open minded and accepting by the fact that pregnancy in high school or college does exist. I wish i had support because i want to do something about that in my country. I hope we can share our ideas, together, we can make somewhat of a difference.
