“Oh No! I can’t be pregnant! I want be a mom someday, but not now, not while I’m living with my mom! “Sadie was 28, wanted get a better job and look for a house with her boyfriend. She came in only because a friend brought her, not sure what to expect. She talked to her BWPCC advocate about all of her pregnancy options. She’d researched on the internet and understood the abortion procedure. Her boyfriend “was really excited until I told him I was thinking about an abortion. Then he cried and told me he would support me no matter what.” Her advocate told her that the strain of an abortion on a relationship often ends it, but she dismissed that. She was far enough along to get an ultrasound that day to determine if she even would need an abortion. (Anyone considering an abortion needs an ultrasound to confirm a viable pregnancy. If it’s not viable then paying for abortion services is unnecessary.) During the ultrasound her thoughts started to change upon seeing her own baby and how early the baby developed. By the end she told her friend even that though she was afraid, she wanted to parent and was excited to tell her boyfriend that she no longer wanted an abortion.
