When Pro-Choice Means No Choice 7

Miriam, a young English woman turned around at a marie stopes abortuary. She and her boyfriend had been threatened with eviction. They had a young child already and they had both been temporarily homeless when that child was born. The stress of this happening again – especially with their little child - was enough to make them feel that they could not face this pregnancy. Neither of them felt that abortion was right.
Marie Stopes offered: abortion
'Pro-choicers' offered : to defend her right to abortion
Pro-lifers offered: Legal advice and support to prevent or delay eviction while exploring other permanent housing possibilities. We also put in place two back up plans to ensure that whatever happened that Miriam would NOT become homeless again, including a concrete offer of housing from ourselves if the other options did not work out.
Outcome: Miriam and her partner agreed that they wished to continue the pregnancy – since homelessness was their main fear and they now knew this would be avoided.
