“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,” the reality TV star revealed to her followers.
“I have had this in my heart and it has been very hard on me,” she continued. “I was afraid to be judged by my family, my mother, even my dad. So I did it before they could find out. I should have looked into my options more but I didn’t. Ryan has been supportive through it all in case you all were wondering he is the father of that child too. And he let me make my decisions. I got on birth control right afterwards.”
While the 19-year-old teen mom’s heartfelt honesty sparked many supportive comments, Jamie also got some vicious attacks after she posted a photo (which has since been taken down) of her ultrasound, with the caption, “Rest in peace little angel. September 17, 2012.”
“Wow so u took a pic of the baby u killed?? Seriously… WOW,” wrote one follower.
Others offered support, such as, “No one should EVER judge you for your right to choose, regardless of what or why you chose. Nor do you have to explain.”
It’s been a rocky relationship for the young couple, including Jamie’s court filing in May 2011 for sole custody of their daughter Miah, claiming that Ryan had “a history of driving while under the influence of alcohol” and a “history of cocaine abuse.”
