A SAFE PLACE
So your thoughts are PANIC!! What am I going to do? If you’re staying with parents, what are they going to say and do? If you are living with someone other than parents you have pretty much the same questions. Take a deep breath. No really take a deep breath. Good. now realize there is help. We ARE here to help. So you are never without help. What if you’re too scared to tell them? We can help. If you’d like help to tell the people in your life we can help with that too. What if you need a safe place while they process the information? If you’re a minor we will have to speak to your parents. They do have legal authority in your life. But NO ONE has the right to force you to abort. It is even illegal for your parents to force you to abort. If you need legal help you can call Alliance Defense Fund in most states at. 800-835-5233. There is a form at the end of this article that you can fill out and fax to any abortion clinic you think someone might take you. Keep a copy with you. It threatens them with legal action if you they force you to abort.
Now if you think you’re in danger call 911. Don’t be worried about “getting into trouble.” If you truly are in danger you should seek safety. CHOICES4LIFE has relocated women over 18 to a safe place away from either a perpetrator or anyone unsafe. Your safety is top priority. If someone threatens you with “if you don’t abort, I’ll ….” your thoughts could be “it would be easier to abort.” But the reality is that only you will live with the depression and self-destructive feelings that accompany abortion. There are other options. There are financial options as well as adoption options. One 13 yr. old was told that no one would want her baby. That was a lie. Forced to abort but it was hurting too much, the doctor stopped and told the mom to bring her back when she had more money to put her under general anesthesia! The baby was physically and mentally harmed that day. And the 13 yr. old found out that a couple absolutely wanted the baby. She refused to go back to the abortion clinic and placed her daughter for adoption. It’s sad that she didn’t know she had rights and that someone would love her baby BEFORE an attempted abortion. Remember no matter how old you are you have rights to be safe and not forced to abort. Abortion is a permanent pain that never goes away.
There are times when a person needs to just start over somewhere else during pregnancy or after giving birth. CHOICES4LIFE will try to find a safe place for you and your child. If you want to raise your child we will assist you in being self-sufficient as much as we can. We work with other organizations to help you with all your needs. You are not alone. Call us and call upon Jesus. He’s helped everyone who does. However your faith is not a criterion for being helped.
