“Kirah’s” life had been difficult. So when a pregnancy test came back positive, she was adamant that she did not want to be pregnant. Convinced that a baby was more than she could handle, Kirah began actively seeking to abort. However, she still chose to reach out to Human Coalition’s national Contact Center. And the call agent helped Kirah schedule an appointment with one of our women’s care clinics for the very next day.
Single Mom without a Job, Living with Family
At the clinic, Kirah explained to her counselor that she was unemployed and a single mom living with her family. She didn’t know how she could possibly handle a baby and go back to school. In addition, she felt she couldn’t live with her family indefinitely. Kirah’s counselor walked her through the programs available to her. She also assured Kirah that she wasn’t alone and there was help for her and her child. The counselor explained that with the help available to her, Kirah could still reach her goals and have her baby.
On the ultrasound monitor, Kirah saw her baby wiggling and stretching its little arms and legs. This caused her certainty about getting an abortion to waver. Over the following weeks, Kirah struggled with the desire to keep her baby and the stress of her situation. However, as our clinic staff continued to support and encourage her, Kirah chose life for her child!
