The purpose of this thread is to explain a story I hope no one has to endure. I found out last week that I am pregnant. For a while, I wondered how far along I was. So, I went to my local 'Planned Parenthood' because the new insurance I have won't let me actually see a doctor since I haven't picked one. I find out yesterday that I am eligible for the medication RU486 (I have to say, it is surely a clever name... Are you for 86'ing this pregnancy) Well, it costs 445 dollars for a medication abortion. At my personal point I am not able to carry this to term and it is basically something that shouldn't have happened based upon things I won't discuss. Well, today was my scheduled appointment to begin my miscarriage. Low and behold, I can't get insurance to cover the costs due to the fact that it's a liability to them to use a 'local free' clinic. They told me yesterday it would be 200 dollars. I accepted. They inform me today that the real cost is 445 bucks. I had a sonogram yesterday that cost me 100 dollars. I am now 5 weeks pregnant and now I have to wait until next week to cover the costs. All in all, I am just fucking lost. I don't know what to think, my moral issues are being questioned and I am in a state of shock. I guess the reason I'm telling you all is because I'd want to let all the girls and guys know how taxing this is not just emotionally but economically as well. So next week, I will explain to you how it all works... but for now, I wait.
