Teen mother Jamie McKay has revealed she recently had an abortion to avoid becoming a mother for a second time.
Jamie, 18, shared an ultrasound of the baby on Thursday via Twitter with the distressing message ‘rest in peace little angel. September 17, 2012.’
The teenager initially led her followers to believe she had miscarried.
But a short time later she set the record straight revealing the loss of her baby was due to an abortion, not miscarriage.
‘Thank you all for the love and support but I want you to know I did not miscarry. I chose abortion.
‘I chose it out of fear. I feel like I made a mistake and I can’t take it back,’ she wrote.
