WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS?
The Right to Choose Includes the Right to Know
An unplanned pregnancy is a hard thing to face. You probably already know that you have several
options. It’s hard to think clearly when you are feeling stressed or anxious about a pregnancy that has
come at the wrong time. It’s hard to imagine what the future will hold and the impact this one decision
will have on your life.
The Basic Options That Are Available For You to Consider:
Before you decide … You deserve to have as much information as possible. No matter what choice you
are considering, there are many variables to consider within each option: If you parent, will you marry
the baby’s father or will you be a single parent? If you make an adoption plan, will you choose an open adoption or a closed adoption? If you choose abortion, will you have some type of surgical abortion or a chemical abortion (usually determined by how far along you are in the pregnancy).
You have lots of choices with adoption. Will it be open, semi-open, or closed? Will it be private or will
you use an agency?
Today there are adoption plans in which you can know your child and be a part of your child's life. You can have the peace of knowing your child is loved and cared for by the couple you choose.
We can help you understand your adoption.
You may have more questions than answers about parenting or maybe the thought of becoming a parent seems impossible to you at this time. We've talked to hundreds of clients who are concerned about things like this:
We can talk about all these issues with you so you can decide if parenting is right for you.
WHAT ABOUT ABORTION?
If abortion is something you are considering, you need to know the facts so that you can make an
informed decision. An abortion is a medical procedure. There are two different types of abortions. What type of abortion would you have and what are the short term risks and the long term risks? Are you considering an abortion to please someone else or because someone else is insisting? You need to make this decision for yourself, of course the support of your parents, boyfriend or friends is important, but ultimately it is your decision. I am not ready to be a parent. I don’t want anyone to know that I am pregnant. These are valid questions with which we can help. What are the risks of abortion? There are many risks associated with abortions including abnormal bleeding, sterilization, feeling of loss, and depression. Some of the long term risks include depression, guilt, anxiety, eating disorders, and low self-esteem, and could take years to appear. More information will be given at your appointment.
