I'm sure many people will tear me apart for asking this but please understand that there is absolutely nothing anyone could say to me that would cause me to change my mind, feel guilty about what I'm doing, or convince me that I am going to rot in Hell. I'm a well-informed adult with strong ethics and do not consider early abortion to be unethical. I am feeling very ill with this pregnancy and I have a medical condition which I've been advised (by my former doctors) would be worsened significantly by pregnancy/birth.

That being said, I am in need of help. I'm new to the UP and recently found out that I'm pregnant due to a condom mishap which I didn't remedy with "The Morning After Pill." My mistake and I have/will pay a big price for it. I was shocked to discover that there are no abortion providers in the UP and the nearest place to go for help is in WI. This would involve paying $350(we are a low income couple), driving 4 hours on 2 different days due to the ridiculous 24 hour waiting period, hotel stays, and waiting until well into January to have an abortion. We've, therefore, considered driving to Chicago where there is no waiting period. Minnesota is also a consideration. I've called numerous abortion financial aid groups and have yet to get through to anyone. For obvious reasons, I want to do the responsible thing and have an abortion ASAP.

If you have gone through the abortion process in the UP please share your story with us. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. We've been calling and searching since I found out a couple days ago. I'm exhausted physically and emotionally.

Call PLANNED PARENTHOOD and ask for a referral? Sadly it looks like SAGINAW may be your closest location?

If you're in the western UP, then I'd go for the Chicago option. You could do the drive round trip, long, but easily doable.

I think Women on Waves will mail you an abortion pill if you ask.

I would be willing to send you money to your PayPal account for your abortion.
