My Story

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.

damillia...i'm glad you were able to access the resources you needed to make the choice you wanted! your voice is extremely important in this movement. i'm proud that you have decided to take part in something bigger than yourself.

abortion is a personal decision, not a political discussion!
