Higher Education and Pregnancy: Sometimes at Odds
tags: pregnancy, abortion, going to school while pregnant, attending college while pregnant, scholarships for single moms, scholarships for pregnant women
The U.S. Census Bureau reports that 80 percent of single-parent households are headed by women, and 40 percent of children in such a situation live in poverty. Therefore, higher education for pregnant and single moms is vital to lift both out of poverty. The Guttmacher Institute has reported that more than 40 percent of Planned Parenthood clients either were attending college or had some college education and another 35 percent were in or had graduated high school. These students need to know they can still get an education while pregnant or parenting. True Care and others are responding to that need.

Many of the women we see at True Care attend college, whether Casper’s community college, the University of Wyoming in Laramie, or UW at Casper College. A few are enrolled in out-of-state institutions pursuing higher education. Going to school can be a reason women consider (or even choose) abortion. This school year, True Care started our Adopt-A-College Student Program. We selected five young women who came to our center who wanted to attend college but had significant barriers to move forward, in particular, finances. Read more about this new program and how supporting college-bound women can help them choose life instead of abortion.
