please help :(

i wrote to this blog about fundraising for an abortion and i’m really hoping someone can help me out. my name is sam and i’m a trans guy living in california. i’ve only come out to myself as trans recently and am in a relationship with a really awesome guy who i was with before i realized i was trans. unfortunatrly, part of the reason i realized i’m trans is because i experience dysphoria. me and my boyfriend found out i’m about 13 weeks pregnant about a week ago (i’m really skinny and i haven’t gained much weight so i didn’t know until now). neither him or i are in a good financial position for this, and i can’t help but feel really uncomfortble thinking about what’s inside of me. i thought about adopting out, but whenever i think about being pregnant or giving birth, i just start freaking out. i really need this to be over as soon as possible.

i called a clinic near me and they said for how far along i am, it’ll be about $855. since i’m in cali, i don’t need a parent’s permission, and so far, i’ve mnaged to keep it a secret, which is for the best when it comes to my family. i hate asking for help like this, but i just cant see any other way i can afford this. i really hope someone here can help me.

i set up a paypal account just for this and any donations can be sent to thank you so much, i’m really greatful for any help i can get.

Why do you support abortion if it kills people? How can you possibly justify taking another life? Selfish human beings who rationalize in their heads that it's not "killing" so that their life can be a bit easier from their mistakes. No one is a mistake. There's a reason why each and every one of us was put on this earth and it is not up to us to play God and decide who lives and dies.

“It kills people,” is where you’re wrong.

Do you know what does kill people? Banning abortion. Illegal, unsafe abortion is one of the leading causes of maternal mortality around the world and it kills almost 70,000 each year. That’s nearly 200 people a day unnecessarily killed by pro-“life” policies.

Countries where abortion is illegal almost consistently have a.) higher maternal mortality rates and b.) higher abortion rates compared to countries with policies that respect reproductive healthcare.

Calling people selfish and questioning their morality does not reduce the need for abortions. All it does is contribute to the stigma surrounding abortion - which, again, can kill people, if you happen to target someone particularly vulnerable to your unfounded judgments. 

If you think abortion is so wrong because it kills people, why the hell do you continue to support policies that ensure that it will happen more and happen in an unsafe, deadly manner?


You need to know about Ohio’s new abortion bill that would ban abortion at six weeks, before many women even know they’re pregnant

North Dakota and Arkansas passed similar bills that were later struck down as incompatible with Roe v. Wade; the Supreme Court declined to hear any appeals, sending the signal that an Ohio law would meet the same fate. But Ohio’s conservative lawmakers see an opening after Donald Trump’s victory in the presidential election last month. 



Texas has passed a humiliating law that requires fetal remains from abortion or miscarriage to be buried or cremated

Under the new rule, hospitals, abortion clinics, and other health care facilities are prohibited from disposing of fetal remains in sanitary landfills. Instead, they must finance cremation or burial of the remains. Texas made this clarification in response to outrage about privacy concerns.
