[As a promised follow-up to this post.]
I'm visiting home this week and won't be back for months, and I can't safely stay pregnant in Afghanistan much longer. Can you see me before Sunday?
They'll ground me if they find out I'm pregnant, but the Air Force is my last chance out of the dead-end town I'm graduating from. How early in my pregnancy can I have an abortion?
My fiance just left for a second tour, and I can't imagine going through this without him. Where can I find an abortion provider and someone to talk to?
(OR: My fiance was just killed while serving, and I can't imagine going through this without him. Where can I find an abortion provider and someone to talk to?)
(OR: My fiance was just killed while serving, and I can't imagine not having his child in five/six/seven months. Where can I find prenatal care and someone to talk to?)
I'm an Army brat -- we travel around with my mom a lot -- so I don't know this town too well or have a lot of friends I could ask for help. Where's the closest abortion clinic, and will it be OK if I ride the bus there?
We're on my husband's TriCare plan, but they're denying coverage for my abortion even though the pregnancy is shutting down my kidneys. Is there anyone out there that helps with this sort of thing?
(I sure hope so, five or six weeks from the start of your last normal period, here, here, here, you'll probably need a friend to drive you home and may need to check out parental consent laws in your state, and yes thank god but they need our help.)
"Back to the status quo" update in the last two weeks: Military higher-up to reverse official policy punishing pregnancy. OK, now how about you combat that parallel de-facto punishment system too? Reproductive justice in tiny, endless shuffles...
Um. Placenta Sandwich, have you been scooping soup out of my head and spoon-feeding me? Sadly enough, this deserves your avid attention.ReplyDelete
