Disabled Woman Cannot Afford Clinical Abortion in the US
I was with someone of a different race for 7 months, he left knowing i was pregnant with his child and refuses to support my being pregnant in any way. He strongly wishes for the pregnancy not to continue, yet won’t pay the costs to terminate pregnancy. Im disabled and unable to pay for anything myself. Im unable to keep this child and raise it on my own

Couple Cannot Pay to Raise or Abort a Child
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.

Widow of Suicide Cannot Care for Another Child
I am a single mother of two, and my husband killed himself so we are living off of a very tight income of SSI survivor benefits while I try to go to college in order to provide for them. I can not afford another baby, I can barely afford the two I have, and I do not have a car or the 1300. to get the abortion if I had a way to get there and found someone to watch my kids. I need to do something quick and I dont get any money for a few more weeks, by then I think it would be too late to get the procedure done. I get my school financial aid in September or October and can send you the money then but I wont have it until that point. If you could help it would be greatly appreciated, but if not I understand.
