"'If you listen closely you can hear your baby begging to keep them alive' is what they screamed to me on my way inside. Holding the hand of the volunteer, I felt as if she was an anchor grounding me to the earth, like I had a safety net, I felt comfortable. I wonder if they knew I have two children already that I need to protect. That I couldn't continue working three jobs while pregnant. It wasn't ever a question for me. I needed to do this for me. I needed to do this for my family. They scream 'abortion is murder' but in my case. Abortion ment life. Abortion ment responsibility. And I'm forever grateful I had such a loving support system at Preterm."
