She was desperate to hide her pregnancy

A young woman attempted to get an abortion at 26 weeks. After she was told that an abortion was no longer an option given the stage of her pregnancy, she decided to place the baby up for adoption. For the rest of her pregnancy she hid her condition from her parents because she was scared that they would force her to keep and raise the child. She went so far as to refuse to be hospitalized for preeclampsia at 32 weeks against medical advice because she feared her parents would become suspicious when she did not come home. She was desperate to continue to hide her pregnancy, believing it was the only way she could preserve her relationship with her parents.
