Going through abortion alone.

Going through abortion alone. I have just read a story of a lady who went through abortion by herself. I can sympathize with her ordeal because in three days I will have to go through the same thing. At least one person on this earth knew what she was going through. I am scared and alone, I am single, catholic and african, where do people such as myself get help when no one you know will hold your hand because you are a 'disgrace'?
