To make things worse, Emerson’s friends and family are near her area but show no support whatsoever. They were also unsupportive of her having her two other kids. Emerson plans to keep working her jobs until the baby comes, then she will likely have to stop working for a time. Given her already difficult financial situation, she is afraid that this will put her in a hole financially and that she won’t be able to provide.
With all her mounting fears and worries, Emerson scheduled an abortion. After coming across the Let Them Live website, she broke down in tears, claiming that “I didn’t know organizations like this existed.” She was relieved to speak with our counselors and explained her situation. Emerson is a very smart and well-spoken woman and does not truly want to abort. She claimed that she’s always wanted a third child. But she is also terrified of the potential financial situation that another baby will bring. Because of this, abortion seems like the only viable option.
So many mamas are in situations like Emerson, in which money becomes the deciding factor on whether or not they should allow their babies to live. We do not want this for Emerson or any other mama. We want to stand with her and give her the help she needs to choose life for her precious baby.
Let Them Live has helped many moms with: rent, utilities, groceries, and more!
