Back in May of 2009 I had an unplanned pregnancy. At that time I was under a tremendous amount of stress. I was finishing up my third year of undergraduate studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, as well as having financial problems both in my personal life and with my school. I was in no position to continue on with my pregnancy. With majority of my family being anti-choice, I couldn't turn to them for support, so I turned to my friends. That is when one of them told me about the Chicago Abortion Fund. They supported me in my decision as well as helped me financially. I am forever grateful with CAF for the help that they gave me and the opportunities that they provided me with.
