I Don’t want to be Pregnant. Is Abortion my only Option?

This lady is wondering about her abortion options

No – abortion is not your only option. Whether you’re really considering abortion, or feel the pressure to choose abortion from others around you, know that the decision is ultimately yours to make. 

There are lots of emotions that you are probably feeling at this moment – and it can feel overwhelming. You are not alone. Maybe others have told you abortion is the only way forward, or you don’t understand your other options. You have three options: abortion, adoption, and parenting. 

Here is more information about your options so you can consider all of them before making your decision.

You Have Three Pregnancy Options

1. Abortion

First, there is the serious medical procedure of abortion. Depending on how far along you are will determine which type of abortion you may qualify for – surgical or medical abortion. Each procedure comes with risks and side effects. It’s imperative to understand more details about your pregnancy before choosing this option with lab-quality pregnancy testing and ultrasound.

Some possible risks of medical abortion include incomplete abortion, infection, heavy/prolonged bleeding, fever, or digestive discomfort. 

Potential risks of surgical abortion include damage to the womb or cervix, uterine perforation, excessive bleeding, infection, and more. 

2. Adoption

Many women don’t know that there are numerous types of adoption plans to choose from. Depending on what type of relationship you want with your child, if any, will determine what plan you go with. Choose from open, closed, or semi-open adoption. Open adoption is the most common type, where you get to decide how often you see your child and the adoptive family.
