1) Date raped woman seeking natural abortion in  California, USA

The guy I sort of new from school he seemed nice, so I accepted an date after we ate it was late I asked to be brought back home on the way I notice he wasn't going the right way, when I told him, he pulled over to the side of the road where it was dark before I knew it I could not fight him off of me, I tried so hard but it felt like a ton of bricks laying on me. I feel ashamed and like it is my fault like I should have gotten to know him better or something. I can't tell my family I'm suppose to be the one that does good for herself and now I'm pregnant. My family barely gets by it is hard for us all. I don't know what I'm going to do. I don't have any insurance , I called the abortions clincs I thought I could pay for it out of pocket but the lowest I found was 395.00 which is way out of my range. Please help me if you can.
