5) Woman from Kentucky, USA: I don't want my family or my husband to know that my cousin raped me. No one in my family will believe me and my husband will hurt me if he finds out. I am ashamed of what happened and just want to forget about it. I have talked with my best friend and she has tried to find a way to get money for me to get an abortion but we are both very poor.

I must come to the library to use the computer because we have no computer at home. I do not work because I take care of my 4 children. My husband and I have not had sex in almost six months so he would know the baby isn't his. Please help me find a way to end this pregnacy.
