Threatened Pregnant Woman Needs a Way Out
I am a mother of one child already who never wanted to have any more kids. I always use condoms because of this and the fact that without insurance I can’t afford to pay out of pocket for BC. My significant other got me drunk and did not use a condom on purpose to control me. He says he will leave me if I have an abortion and he has threatened me if I do as well. I am already miserable because of the abuse (emotional and verbal but not yet physical) that I recieve from him. I can’t bring another child into this situation and I can’t handle it being pregnant either.

Drugged Woman Worries for Prejudiced Husband
I am a white woman married to a white military man. I was, I believe, drugged at a party and had sex with a black man…which I have NEVER done before. We did use a condom, but he failed to tell me that it came off sometime during the time that we had sex, and when he did tell me, he thought that it was funny. My husband is extremely,and understandably so, upset and hurt by all of this. I can’t force myself to have a medical abortion, and having a mixed baby just isn’t and option. I love my husband very much, and I don’t believe that I would have ever cheated on him, especially with a black man, if I weren’t under the influence of an intoxicating agent. PLEASE HELP ME!!!

Woman Manipulated Into Relationship and Sex
I am currently in a relationship that I don´t want to be in. I had already ended it but he manipulated me back with threats of hurting himself or others. I am hoping that he will soon get bored and leave me alone, but I know that one of the things he wants most in this world is to be a father, and he would not leave me alone if we had a child together. I have given it a lot of thought and am pretty sure that I don´t want to have a baby, ever.

Reason for Pregnancy: Consensual sex with ex-boyfriend
