Emergency Abortion Fund

UPDATE: There were some complications and I will be on bed rest until the 2nd of December. I currently have abnormal uterine bleeding caused by fibroids in my uterus.

I will not be able to make the money this week for additional medication (only partially covered by my insurances) or for most of my bills this month. I may even have to find a new job, because of the physical demands of my current one. I appreciate all the help I've gotten this far, but unfortunately, I'll need a little more.

---------------

A friend of mine has been been placed in a terrible situation. This is her story:

Ive decided not to share my story, because a lot of aspects of it are very personal and angering for me to look at.
 
But after I received some help after recently being hospitalized I find out that I'm pregnant by rape. I've never had consensual relations with a man let alone unprotected. Despite that, because of this rape, I will need an abortion for the first time in my life. And not only will I be heavily inconvenienced, I'm going to miss out on vital money that it takes to move from the area I'm in where my car has been stolen and my apartment has been broken into previously. I seem to keep falling on hard times and then bad luck and then more hard times . I really need help and support because I can't find it anywhere else.

I want to talk to counselors, and I want therapy, but I just don't have the fucking money. I don't have money for much of anything, let alone this. I spend so much time of my life working just to BARELY make ends meet, and someone takes it upon themselves to destroy my life and my situation further.

I'm on my own in every sense of the word. There's no one I can call for help, no one I can rely on to help or protect me when shit hits the fan. I've been struggling to remove myself from fucked up situations, and have been recently making progress, but this is a huge setback.

I try as hard as I can to be hopeful and optimistic, but now I will miss out on important WORK for THREE DAYS if I can even raise this money, and I don't know of or when I'll manage to recover financially.

Please help me. I have nowehere and no one else to turn to.
