  • No matter how old you are.
  • Even if you are a minor.  
  • You have a legal right to have your baby. 

View & print out this PDF form and sign it. Fax it to the clinic or abortionist where you are being taken to have an abortion.

If you can't fax it, then print it out, sign it and bring it with you and hand it to the receptionist at the abortion clinic.

If you do not have a printer, then HAND WRITE this out as best you can and sign it and bring it with you so you can hand it to the receptionist. This is a legal document. Hand written, it will not be perfect but do not worry. The abortionist will not want to get involved. He or she will know you are serious about not wanting an abortion.

DO NOT SIGN any of their papers. Refuse to take off your clothes. Do not get up on the table. Just keep refusing to do anything they ask you to do and tell them you want to have your baby.

Even if you do not have this document. You have now read it and you know your rights.

YOU CANNOT BE FORCED INTO AN ABORTION BY ANYONE!!!

AN EXAMPLE: Just recently, we had a 16 year old taken by her mother to an abortionist. The 16 year old said, "I will NOT abort my baby. I can raise my baby myself." She fought so hard with her mother that the woman at the clinic gave this pregnant teen three phone numbers and now she is living at our shelter. YOU CAN DO THIS. 

You can have your baby if you want to and there are places you can go all over the United States to live and raise your baby.

Dear Pregnant Friend,

We are here to help you and your baby. Please give us a chance to do so.

Sad womanIf you have learned you are pregnant, you may be feeling confused, alone, and afraid to tell your parents or your boyfriend. Because you are faced with one of the most important decisions you may make in your life, you may have questions about what to do next.

We, at Gift of Hope, want to help you by giving you all the information about your options and tools so you can make the best decision. You are not alone. There is hope, and positive outcomes can arise from this situation. There are organizations ready to help you by providing resources, counseling, and even advise you of your legal rights.

One of these organizations is The Justice Foundation. We are working with The Justice Foundation to be sure that you are aware of your legal rights concerning your pregnancy. You may get a lot of advice and input about what decision you should make regarding your pregnancy, but it is ultimately your decision.

It is unlawful for your parents, relatives, or boyfriend to unduly pressure, force, or coerce you into having an abortion. In fact, to do so could subject them to potential criminal charges of child abuse or fetal homicide (killing a baby while still in the womb). The United States Supreme Court makes it clear that an abortion decision by a minor must be her decision; that it must be free, independent, voluntary, and non-coerced. No one can legally force you to have an abortion.

Some examples of statements of coercion or force include the following:

“If you have this baby, I am kicking you out of my house”, or

“You are my child and you will do what I say.”

Your parents do not have to support your child financially; however, they are legally obligated to continue to support you. Additionally, you have the right to receive child support from the father of your child. And you may be eligible for financial assistance from the State and other groups. There is a letter (under the tab "Letter to Parents") that you can give to your parents or anyone else pressuring you to have an abortion which explains your legal rights.

Other young women who have been in a similar situation have found:

“I am so glad that I was informed by my pregnancy center and The Justice Foundation that my parents couldn’t force me into having an abortion.”

“At first I was angry when my daughter told me she was pregnant and thought she should get an abortion. After having some time to cool off and read the parent letter, I told her that I would stand by whatever decision she made and she chose to parent her child.”

In one situation a pregnant 14-year old’s father insisted that she have an abortion and even took her to the abortion facility. But she wanted to keep her baby, asserted her legal rights, and now she is the mother of a beautiful little girl.

If your parents, relatives, or boyfriend are trying to pressure or coerce you into having an abortion, please show them the letter. If you need additional help in understanding or asserting your legal rights, please contact the pregnancy center or call The Justice Foundation at 210-614-7157.

Sincerely,

From all your friends at the Several Sources Shelters and The Justice Foundation.

Dear Pregnant Friend, Kathy DiFiore with newborn

This PDF letter is for you to give to your parents or guardians. They CANNOT force you or make you have an abortion. Read this letter carefully and you will understand that the law is on YOUR SIDE. No one, even your own parents or guardians can force you or make you have an abortion.

All you have to do is say, "No, I don't want to have an abortion." DON'T sign any papers, do not get up on the abortionist's table.  Stay strong. Bring copies of this letter and others with you where ever you go.

We are here to help you and your baby. Please give us a chance to do so. Stay STRONG. Be positive. Pray for God's help and know that we are praying for you too.
