Why the negative stigma?


On December 1, 2016, I gave birth to my first child. I know, this is quite a normal thing in life. The only difference between me and billions of women is when I had my daughter, I was only 17 years old. Since becoming pregnant, I had a ridiculous amount of hatred being thrown my way. I had people telling me they hoped my daughter was born with downs syndrome (she was born perfectly healthy) or that I'd miscarry. To this day I still don't understand it. How can anyone wish something like that on a child? What is so wrong with teenage moms? My daughter is happy, healthy, and WELL loved.
