My friend Ashley went to a place called Birthright... I'm sure there's one of those places where you live. Just look around.

The good things about BR is that they:
Don't tell your parents anything
Give you a FREE pregnancy test
*and* If you are pregnant, they help you out

Birthright goes under the category 'abortion alternatives'. Which is great, if you'd like to continue your pregnancy if you are pregnant, and not so hot if you'd rather terminate, or have the option to. It's a very tasteful way of stating their feelings on the matter, anyway. At this point, you could get a test at a drugstore and take it very soon, and I think that would be your best course of actin.

Howeverm if it hurts to pee, it seems much more likely that you're looking at a urinary tract infection than apregnancy (though both can happen at the same time) so I'd suggest you seea doctor about that ASAP.

For the record, Birthright is an anti-abortion "counselling center".

They may provide you with a free pregnancy test, of the kind that you can buy at any store, but they will not provide emergency contraception, contraception of any kind, let alone abortion services.

They may also feed you highly misleading and inaccurate information to try and deter you from having an abortion.
