Selena

Stories from Janes who have called the hotline in Texas. Names and identifying details have been changed.

Selena, 17 years-old, said that she was afraid to tell her parents she was pregnant because she had seen what happened when her older sister got pregnant—her father threw her out the door by her hair.

Selena hasn’t seen her sister in years since her family never let her back in the home.

Selena’s parents had never abused her before, but she knew what could happen if they found out she was pregnant.
