Before you make any medical decision, it is important for you to have information about the possible consequences. Abortion is either a medical or surgical procedure and like any medical or surgical procedure, there are risks. You have the right to be fully informed about those risks.
Gathering information on the types of abortion procedures and their risks will help you make an informed decision. Remember, the choice is yours and even though others’ opinions matter, you must live with the consequences. No one can force you to have an abortion. We are here to help you find the information you need to decide what is best for you.
Caring for a child fulltime can be challenging and you may not feel ready. That is okay. You should not feel guilty or bad about these feelings. Preparing an adoption plan and placing your child with another couple is a courageous choice that can benefit everyone involved.
You have lots of choices with adoption. Will it be open or closed? Will it be private or will you use an agency? You are part of the decision making process when making an adoption plan. Making an adoption plan may be best for you if:
- You don’t want an abortion and aren’t ready to parent.
- You want to provide your child emotional and financial stability.
- You want to provide your child with a 2 parent family.
Being a parent is often described as one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences of life. It is a miracle to feel a little life growing inside you. Nothing compares to watching a child develop into a person with a unique personality, interests and talents. You learn to guide, encourage and provide for this new member of your family, offering unconditional love and support.
Regardless of what others say, you have the right to choose to parent your child. We can help you with many of the challenges of choosing this option.
