This story was posted on Reddit: “I am a single mom. I am 20 years old, and I have a 1 year old son. I am barely managing to pay my bills, feed my son, and am constantly facing the threat of eviction. When I became pregnant with my 2nd child; I knew that I would be homeless on the street with 2 children. Before you tell me that there are resources, there are not. I promise you, I’ve tried them all. I loved both of my children, and I aborted my second pregnancy, because I refused to subject either child to a life of severe instability. I wish that things could have been different. I wish help for single moms was there. I did what was best for myself and my son.”

In Duluth, similar stories are common. Pregnancy, abortion, medication, and procedures in Duluth are used to kill 300 children each year. So what? What if you were the unfortunate second child?

In Duluth, pregnant women need help and support.
