Woman With Financial and Marital Trouble Uses Natural Methods for Abortion

Im 39 years old with 2 children ages 17 and 13. I am unhappily married and i have had 2 abortions, in a clinic, and i do not want anymore kids because i had alot of trouble with blood pressure and toxemia with my 2 that i have. My husband is abusive and when he gets mad he tells my children that i have had 2 abortions and that is just not right. He has psychological issues and anger issues. therefore, i can’t see myself having another child by him. Finances are really tight. We hardly have any money to live on. He threatens to leave me on a daily basis and i do not work.

Woman and Boyfriend Cannot Raise a Child and Turn to Natural Miscarriage:

My boyfriend is Irish and unfortunately to have a baby between us would be very very difficult as neither of us are in a position to move permanantly to one another’s country… I don’t have much money, at all. Abortion is nearly out of the question, let alone paying for medical fees of going through with a pregnancy.
