Shirley came to see us after being met at a marie stopes abortion centre. She had lost her hostel place through some foolish behaviour after having too much to drink. She wasn’t a regular drinker, but she knew on this occasion she had overstepped the bounds. Her local council refused to re-house her and even when she found out she was pregnant, they still continued to say she could not be housed. Shirley doesn’t agree with abortion, but after spending a night sleeping on the street, terrified, at 6 weeks pregnant, Shirley went to her doctor and the only offer of help he could offer was abortion. So she found herself at the abortion centre.
Marie Stopes offered: abortion
Pro-choicers' offered : to defend her right to abortion
Pro-lifers offered: Free accommodation while we worked to get her accepted back into the housing system. Moral support and friendship as she went through her pregnancy.
Outcome: Shirley accepted our offer and has chosen to continue her pregnancy. She wants to join us in praying and offering help at the abortion centres.
