1. Military Woman Raped by Her Boyfriend:

I was home on holiday block leave from the military and my boyfriend raped me and didn't even have the courtesy to pull out. It was my ovulation time and despite all my crying he ejaculated inside of me. Come to find out Christmas day I have a 90% chance of bein pregnant. My AIT won't take me if I'm pregnant and I really just need a way out of this without anything surgically that will go on my record.
