Teen Mom 3's Brittany Opens Up About Her Abortion: "I'm Not Ready" to Go Back to the Doctor
Does time really heal all wounds? One year after her abortion, Teen Mom 3's Brittany DeJesus -- the sister of star Briana DeJesus -- is still dealing with the emotional fallout of her decision to terminate her pregnancy.
In this exclusive clip from the ninth episode of MTV's hit series, airing Monday, Oct. 14, the older DeJesus opens up to Briana, 19, and their mom, Roxanne, about why she's afraid to go to the gynecologist. Noting that the last time she went to the doctor was for her abortion, she says she's not prepared for a trip down memory lane.
"I don't want to go and relive that day," Brittany explains. "That's why I don't want no one touching me. I'm not ready for that."
Briana -- who has a 2-year-old daughter, Nova Star -- tries to comfort her sister by reminding her that she had her reasons for getting an abortion. She also encourages Brittany to talk about her feelings instead of keeping them bottled up inside.
"We all know you're hiding it, Brittany," she says. "You have to let it go."
