Tragically, his reaction was worse than Siya ever expected. Almost immediately, he began intensely pressuring and manipulating her to get an abortion. Aware that Siya lost her job and is terrified of being evicted, he has offered to pay her past-due rent — but only if Siya listens to him and aborts their baby. He even picked out the clinic and secretly began making Siya’s travel arrangements. Now, Siya feels backed into a corner. She knows in her heart that he’s being manipulative and self-serving, but believes if she gives in to his demands, maybe he will keep her and her kids from becoming homeless.
Then, Siya was served with an eviction notice and panicked. Her past trauma resurfaced again, and Siya reached the point where she started looking into abortion procedures. Despite this, Siya knows deep down that she doesn’t want to abort her baby. She began desperately seeking out any possible resource that could help her choose life. But when local and government resources failed to provide real help, Siya felt forced to choose between abortion and homelessness. Heartbroken, she contacted her boyfriend and scheduled an abortion for Friday, August 18th.
Fortunately, Siya found Let Them Live through social media around the same time and made contact with our counselors. She wants nothing more than to pay what she owes, secure her housing, and choose life. She told our counselors, “In my normal life, I would keep my baby.” Siya’s fears about being on the streets with her kids has led her to pursue what was once unthinkable.
Will you help us show Siya that she is loved, and that she has the strength to make the right decision even when it feels impossible? Together, we can stand with Siya, meet her needs, and give her the confidence to choose life for her precious baby.
