Well, I found out why my moods have been all over the place lately. I’m pregnant. I can’t be further than 4 weeks along. I was only about three days late. But I live in TX. I can’t have another kid. I have two and my finances are in the stage where I am barely making it through as it is. An unexpected car repair cost put me so far behind on bills that I won’t catch up for about four months. So….I’m asking for help. I can make the appointment, I can get a ride to and from the appointment, and I can handle the emotional toll because I have an amazing support group. But my support group is made up of people in the same financial situation as me. If you can, please donate.
Update: I just got off the phone with the clinic. The great state of TX (eyeroll) has seen fit to make a waiting period so I have the first appointment on Tuesday. It will be $125. The next appointment, which I will make on Tuesday, will be the actual procedure. It will $485. So far, I have $461. I need $149. Please help, if you can.
I know you must seek the adoration and support of those who, like you, believe that killing preborn children is a ‘right’. That a child’s life while living and growing in the womb is worthless and disposable. I simply ask that you consider that you would not be here today making the choice to kill a member of your own family if it were not for the time you spent in your mother’s womb. It’s easy to deprive others of life now that yours is secure — now that you have made it out alive.
Your son or daughter desperately needs you, now more than they ever will. I know you have publicly announced the pending death of your baby with pride and a sense of empowerment. But it’s not too late to hold your head high and reject the destruction of your child. It’s not too late to be their champion, to be their hero.
You don’t even have to parent your little one. You can rise above the cruelty of abortion and become something absolutely amazing, you can become a birthmother. Please reach out to these resources and you will forever be the most important person in your child’s life…
