If you have a positive pregnancy test, you have three choices to consider:

 

Abortion:

If you're thinking of finding an abortion clinic, it is important to remember that abortion is a medical procedure.  What type will you have? What are the risks?  You deserve to know the facts. You owe it to yourself to make an informed decision.

 

Perhaps you're thinking  The father is insisting on an abortion  or I'm not ready to be a parent!  or I can't tell people I'm pregnant.

 

We know exactly how you feel and you are not alone.  If you're considering abortion, you need to know:

  • Are you really pregnant?
  • Is your pregnancy normal? Or, are you at risk for natural miscarriage? Or do you have a tubal pregnancy requiring immediate medical attention?
  • How far along are you?

You may also be interested in knowing:

  • What kind of abortions are available to you?
  • What are your rights with abortion providers?
  • Are there any short-term or long-term risks to consider?

 

We can help you understand your choices and your pregnancy as well as discuss your health and explain your abortion options.  Our Center offers accurate information about all pregnancy options.  This Center does not provide or refer for abortions.

 

ADOPTION

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 in the driver's seat when making an adoption plan and there are lots of things to consider.  You might consider adoption if you:

  • Don't want an abortion and aren't ready to be a parent
  • Want to provide your child with a 2-parent family
  • Want to provide your child emotional and financial stability

In today's adoptions, 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.

 

PARENTING

  • My husband or boyfriend doesn't want the baby but I do

  • How will I finish school?
  • How will I continue working?

  • I don't have medical insurance
  • I can't afford a child

We can talk about these issues with you, so you can decide if parenting is right for you.
