It’s Your Choice
No matter how close they are to you, no one else should decide what to do regarding your unexpected pregnancy. You are the only one who can choose what’s best for you and your child. Don’t let anyone pressure you.
You have three different options. Clearly, none of them are easy to make, but you are strong, and you will know what to do after examining each. Contact the Pregnancy Resource Center for a free consultation and a more detailed description of each one.
Are you considering abortion for your unexpected pregnancy? There are different types of abortion depending on how far along you are in your pregnancy. Each comes with its own set of side effects and risks. Not only are there physical issues, but abortion also has emotional and psychological side effects too. Be sure you get as much information as possible before you make an abortion decision.
Adoption is one option you may not have considered. If you are not wanting to abort but are concerned about your ability to raise your child, adoption could be the answer for you. As the expecting birth mother, you choose the family, the environment, and the amount of involvement you want with your child. You are still a mother, but without the day-to-day responsibilities, that parenting requires.
Like all of your options, choosing to parent is a difficult decision. Many women think they can't parent because they don't have the financial, emotional, and material support needed. Today, there are more resources available than ever before if a woman chooses to parent. In turn, we will support you through pregnancy and beyond. You are not alone on this journey. Let us show you how you can be a successful parent.
