After Grammy-winner Britney Spears, it's now her sister Jamie Lynn Spears who has made some shocking revelations about what she went through when pregnant with her first child at the age of 16, saying her parents pushed her for abortion.

Jamie Lynn has come under a lot of heat lately from Britney fans who feel she is taking advantage of Britney's current situation to make a buck off her upcoming book 'Things I Should Have Said`, but if the snippets obtained by TMZ are any indication, then she has also got a lot to reveal about how she was raised.

TMZ obtained several snippets from Jamie Lynn's upcoming book where she has laid out the events that followed her telling her parents and management she was pregnant in 2007 when she was only a 16-year-old girl.

Jamie Lynn revealed that people from her inner circle, "came to my room trying to convince me that having a baby at this point in my life was a terrible idea `It will kill your career. You are just too young. You don`t know what you're doing. There are pills you can take. We can help you take care of this problem ... I know a doctor,`" adding, "everyone around me just wanted to make this `issue` disappear." She further noted, "...everyone was certain that termination would be the best course of action.

"The mother of two revealed that her phone was taken away to stop her from communicating with people outside her immediate circle, with the goal to keep everything "on the down-low."
