When Pro-Choice Means No Choice 2

Catherine, English Turnaround. Had several previous abortions and pregnancy losses due to violent relationships. Found herself pregnant again in a similar relationship. As a student with debts she had no access to other benefits and urgently needed to move away from the violent situation. She was very unsure of what to do, but very upset that abortion seemed to be her only option, yet again. We met her at Marie Stopes. Marie Stopes offered: abortion 'Pro-choicers' offered : to defend her right to abortion Pro-lifers offered temporary accommodation while she waited to be rehoused, 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. Outcome: Catherine felt under pressure from her circumstances to abort until she was long past the legal limit. She now has her baby and is very glad she does. She says her violent boyfriend is what impacted her life most negatively, and her baby's impact on her life has been challenging but totally positive.
