I’m writing to give my sincere gratitude for the help NAF has given me. I am a single mother of five children and my youngest child is only eight months old. I work hard to support them, and any unforeseen expenses are next to impossible for me to handle. Continuing this pregnancy would have had a tremendous financial impact on my family. Thank you very much for helping me.

I would like to thank NAF for supporting me with this decision. When I called the NAF member clinic in Florida and found out how much the abortion was going to cost, I panicked. However, I reached out to NAF and their support calmed my nerves. Many people may think that this decision is wrong but I believe that you have to do what’s right for you. I thank you again for blessing me during this time.

Over one-third of women of reproductive age have an abortion by the age of 45. However, women who have chosen abortion are often absent from the public debate. In order to break the silence surrounding abortion, we feature real stories from real women each Wednesday on our blog.
