Jesse is a 16-year old high school student. She has discovered that she is pregnant and is thinking about having an abortion. Jesse was born to teenage parents, so she knows they will never allow her to terminate the pregnancy or place the baby up for adoption. Jesse goes to see the school counselor to talk about her situation. During the conversation with the counselor, Jesse discloses that she has a history of self-harm, via cutting her arms and legs with a razor but recently stopped this behavior. Jesse explains she has urges to self-harm again because she can’t bear the thought of having to tell her parents that she is pregnant or having to raise a baby at only 16 years old.  (Note – Jesse attends school in New York State)
