I've been raped... I'm pregnant... should I get an abortion???

I already have a 15 month old daughter, I'm single... I'm in my second term of college, I have no job... I tried to get the morning after pill but the hospital refused to give it to me... I have no way to take care of another child, especially one I have no love for and one I don't want and don't need...

  • My heart goes out to you, but I wouldn't dare presume to tell you what you should do. I think you should get in touch with a counselor who can help you work through the rape and this decision. You have to do what is right for you and no stranger on the internet can tell you what that is. Best of luck to you.

  • You can get the morning after pill (for a fee) at the pharmacy.
    Why wouldn't the hospital give it to you if you were raped? That doesn't make sense.

  • How much do abortions cost anyway? If you have no job where are you getting the money for it? I remember looking into having one yrs ago...like 18 yrs ago now...and it was close to $600 THEN~

  • Are you over 17? If so, just go to the pharmacy and ask for it. They cannot refuse the sale if you're older than 17, and you don't need a prescription unless you're under 17.

    I can't tell you whether to abort or not. That decision is fully yours and you should make it based on your feelings and beliefs. Do whatever you feel is right hun. Good luck, sorry about what happened to you!
