Eleanor is an eastern European woman in a violent relationship. She hasn’t worked in the UK for long enough to receive benefits and is limited in the jobs she is legally allowed to do. She sought an abortion because her boyfriend told her she must.
Marie Stopes offered: abortion
'Pro-choicers' offered : to defend her right to abortion
Pro-lifers offered: accommodation in a safe house, financial support so she could feed herself while sorting out the debts hanging over her head. Moral support and friendship as she went through her pregnancy. English lessons were provided to enable her to improve her job prospects and her life in the UK. Counselling about her violent relationship. We also found her a temporary job.
Outcome: Eleanor accepted our offer and has chosen to continue her pregnancy.
