Your Options

Your Options

If you are pregnant, our specially trained personal advocates will sit and talk with you in a private and caring environment about all of your options. You have three options to consider: abortion, adoption, or parenting. It is important to take time to consider each option, ask all your questions and think carefully about your decision. Only you can decide which option is right for you.

Abortion

If you are considering abortion, you need to know:

  • Am I really pregnant?
  • How far along am I?

A medical quality pregnancy test followed by an ultrasound is the best way to confirm your pregnancy and answer these questions. If you’re considering abortion, it’s important to remember that abortion is a medical procedure.

  • What type of abortion will you have?
  • What are the short-term and long-term risks?
  • What are your rights with an abortion provider?
  • Is my pregnancy normal?

You need to know if you are at risk for miscarriage or have a tubal pregnancy requiring immediate medical attention.

We can help you understand your options and help you find answers to these and other questions.

Adoption

If you are not ready to be a parent, adoption can be a great option. You have many choices with adoption and you may also have many questions. We can help you answer questions like:

  • How can adoption be good for me and my baby?
  • Can I choose a family for my baby?
  • How much contact can I have with my baby after birth and after adoption?
  • How can I be sure my child will be well cared for?

Parenting

The option of parenting may seem impossible to you right now and you may have more questions than answers. Whatever your concerns:

  • I can’t afford a child.
  • I can’t tell my family.
  • My husband/boyfriend doesn’t want the baby.
  • How would I finish school?
  • How would I be able to continue working?
  • How would I pay the medical bills?
  • I’m too young.
  • Where would I live?

We can talk through your concerns with you so you can decide if parenting is right for you.
