i kno this is a SUPER sensitive subject to everyone.. but my younger sister is pregnant and i need to help her get an abortion or else she will run away from home etc etc which would just lead to many many dangers for her and her possible baby. shes 16 and refuses to have her baby and says that she absolutely cannotttt have it.... i do not agree with this but she has been so upset about it that if she doesnt get to the doctor about it i just know she will resort to OTHER ways to get rid of her baby.. dangerous unhealthy etc. I have money in my account for her abortion but i dont know even how to start finding where/ how to go about getting it DONE... HELP!!!!!!!! im so worried!

I just want to commend you on being there for your sister. Everyone needs a big sister to guide them when they are 'lost' in times of troubles. I wish every pregnant teenager had someone like you to hold their hand.
Planned Parenthood is an amazing organization. They discuss all 3 options, adoption, keeping, and abortion. They can inform your sister of her options, and if she wants an abortion get her on the path to obtaining one. Your family doctor can also refer you to a clinic. They are cannot tell your parents. Be aware that abortions are pricey. And come with an emotional toll. Be sure to be there for your sister emotionally too. She might decide it is best to tell your parents so they can give her emotional support too. Parents can surprise you, they can be most supportive, even when you think they won't be. My parents were amazing, and I thought they would kill me!
Sooner is better, there is only a thin time line in which one can obtain an abortion safely.
look in your local phone book under abortions. there are many abortion clinics available, and if you can't find one, check into planned parenthood.
