My name is Joy Snir, I am 31 years old, I am a licensed nail technician and because of the recession business got slow and my license expired and didn't have enough money for renewal! I decided to find some work and wasn't able to find for a couple months so I decided to go the unthinkable route of becoming an escort! On the job, I was raped by a client! Now I just found out recently that I am pregnant and was unaware! I went to go take care of it and thought it was the minimum, but come to find out I am far along for a regular abortion, and learned it is going to cost me 800 dollars! I reached out to Women's Emergency at 7400 S.W. 88th St. suite 204, Miami Fl 33159 and told them my story, and they denied me the assistance! I also tried the National Network of Abortions as well and they have a recording for the funding to try them back every few minutes, I Have been doing that for 4 days straight and emailing them, and nothing! P.S.: Is there anyone or group that is able to help me before it is to late and I have to have this baby, you can contact me at 305-812-1226 my name is Joy Snir
