Over one-third of women of reproductive age have an abortion by the age of 45. However, women who have chosen abortion are often absent from the public debate. In order to break the silence surrounding abortion, we will be featuring real stories from real women each Wednesday on our blog. If you would like to share your story with us or have it published on our blog, go to http://www.prochoice.org/pregnant/hotline/share.html.
I have a two year old and no job at the moment due to recently being laid off. As much as I love children, the uncertainty of finances and how I’m even going to give my two year old everything he needs right now is just too scary. Thank you so much for your assistance in helping me obtain care. I could not have done it without you.

Having an abortion at a NAF member clinic has granted me a second chance. It has also given me back my choice; I’ve been allowed to make my own decision. I am pro-choice, pro-family, and pro-faith, and I trust this clinic.
