1) Woman forcibly impregnated seeks natural abortion

 2) Woman with health issues and unstable living situation seeks natural abortion

I am a college student, who is in debt and have health issues of my own.  My boyfriend already has a toddler who he is struggling to take care of.  We were pregnant before, and I was forced to have an abortion by my father even though my boyfriend and i wanted to try and tough it out and just have our baby.  The more I think about it, life would become very hard for us as a faily. I want to be able to give my baby the world but no matter how I calculate, right now that is not possible.
