Pro-choicer: put aside money in case you need an abortion

Pro-abortion activist Katha Pollitt says:

“Build a reserve fund in case you need to end a pregnancy. Even if you can only put aside five dollars a week, in two years you’d have enough for a first trimester abortion, even if your partner didn’t share the costs, which of course he should. (In fact, he should pay the whole thing, since you’re the one going through that not fun day.) If you got pregnant before then, you would at least have a head start on raising when you needed.”
