I’m pregnant. Now what?
If you have a positive pregnancy test, you have three choices to consider:
Parenting, Adoption, Abortion:
It is important that you educate yourself on each of these options before making a decision. Real empowerment comes when you find the resources and inner strength necessary to make your best choice. Please call us to make an appointment so that you can receive the information that you need.
If you chose to parent, this time may be filled with a lot of uncertainty. However, there are many ways we can help you learn how to be the best parent you can be. Our program “Earn While You Learn” helps you to understand what to expect in pregnancy and beyond. With each lesson that you complete, you will earn points for baby supplies and other materials.
You may decide to make an adoption plan for your child. Each year over 50,000 women in America make this choice. Making an adoption plan gives you lots of options. You can choose a family and decide how involved you want to be. It is all up to you. This loving decision is often made by women who first thought abortion was their only option.
Abortion is a medical procedure that will end pregnancy.
Perhaps you’re wondering if you can be hurt during an abortion. Some women experience hemorrhaging, infection and damage to internal organs after an abortion. There may be more serious physical consequences for women. Teenage girls considering abortion face special health and psychological risks.
Have you thought about the possible emotional consequences of abortion? In one study, over 90% of the women polled eventually regretted their abortions. Sometimes even the men who look back with remorse. Most relationships cannot withstand the strain of an abortion and the couple breaks up.
One of the reasons a person may choose abortion is that he/she doesn’t really know what happens during an abortion. You may have heard all kinds of things from friends about fetal development. Even some medical people may tell you that it’s just a blob of tissue or may refer to your baby as a “product of conception”. Did you know that your baby’s heart starts beating just 21 days after conception?
