 3) Financially challenged woman seeking natural abortion in Jamaica, Caribbean Islands

I came to this point in my life because I had consensual sex with the man that I love. I have been with this guy since I was fourteen years old, I am now seventeen about to be eighteen in five months. I want to have this baby but I know that I can not afford to take of this child or myself even though my boyfriend and I both have jobs. If I do have this child my parents will kick me out of my house and beat me. I would be able to move with my boyfriend but he has a small one bed room apartment and he cant pay those bills and take care of myself and a child.He has no family that would help support us and neither do I. So i refuse to bring my child into a world of pain and poverty at such a young age just like my eight other sibling and I.
