Abortion is not just a simple medical procedure. For many women it is a life altering event with significant physical & emotional repercussions. Most women who struggle with past abortions say that they wish they had been told all of the facts about abortion.
You may see this unplanned pregnancy as a major obstacle to your life plan. Be encouraged by the many women who in the same situation, found the resources at our Centers to make positive choices & realize their dreams.
Remember, no one else can legally force you into a decision. If you are getting pressure from parents or the father of the baby, you have legal rights to make your own informed choice. Explain your feelings & try to get them involved in the counsel to explore your positive options.
Before you decide you deserve to know the facts, & the law gives you the right to be fully informed concerning abortion procedures.
Pregnancy Resources does not offer abortion services or abortion referrals.
We offer an excellent "Looking at Adoption" workbook program to help you explore adoption as an option.
We're not here to pressure you into an adoption decision. Our program is simply designed to help you in the fact-finding process. You can work with someone to discuss the realities involved in both adoption and parenting. We do not facilitate adoption, but we can provide a list of adoption agencies that can. If you do decide to make an adoption plan for your baby, we also provide support and assistance through our workbook program for the post-adoption process.
Adoption Facts You Should Know:
- Researching adoption as an option does not commit you to choosing adoption. The final decision about adoption is not made until after your baby is born.
- Adoption has changed a lot in the past 20 years. You can decide if you'd like a closed, open, or semi-open adoption plans.
- Adoption is a parenting decision that focuses on the needs of your child.
- Adoption is a decision that's often made by women who first thought abortion was their only way out.
- Adoption is a legal transaction. Rules are different from state to state. That's why we recommend you use an adoption specialist. They're uniquely equipped to help you navigate the process successfully.
- Making an adoption plan involves very strong emotions. An adoption specialist will be able to provide good counsel and ongoing support both during and after your pregnancy.
If you'd like to explore adoption, just call to make an appointment.
Pregnancy Resources uses only reputable, licensed adoption agencies as referrals.
