When Pro-Choice Means No Choice 3

Petra, a young Polish woman changed her mind when offered help outside a BPAS abortuary.
Petra was carrying a mixed race baby and had broken up with the baby's father. She was concerned about what life would be like for her baby, whether the child would be accepted by her family and so on. She also had to leave her current accomodation and wait for 6 months before being entitled to help with housing or 3 months before being entitled to benefits.
She didn't want to abort, she had asked her GP about adoption, but abortion was suggested to her as a better option
BPAS offered : abortion
'Pro-choicers' offered : to defend her right to abortion
Pro-life offered: free accomodation, a little financial support, got her a job, supported her until she was ready to move on and be eligible for other support.
Outcome: Petra was happy to have the chance to respect her child's life. She planned to give her child up for adoption, but later decided to keep the baby.
