Dear Abortion Advice
I’m living on a relative’s couch right now because I was kicked out of my apartment. I just found out I’m pregnant. I have a job and am putting money away to get my own place but I’m scared. My emotions are all over the place. Some days I don’t want to deal with this and want an abortion and other days I want to keep the baby but worry if it will work out.
Pregnant and Homeless
Dear Pregnant and Homeless,
It understandable that you’re scared and that you want to have a safe stable place for you and the baby. There are professionals willing to help you. I would suggest calling these national programs to learn what resources are available for women in your position:
The National Coalition for the Homeless
Women’s, Infants and Children (WIC)
Childcare Assistance Through the Office of Child Care
Right now, you could check with the county in which you live for a list of shelters for pregnant women.
