You’re likely used to hearing opinions from loved ones. Whether it’s general life advice or a specific concern, opinions are part of life. But it’s crucial to understand the role of these opinions when facing major life changes. 

If you have an unexpected pregnancy and are considering pregnancy options like abortion, your support system can be a critical tool for you to use. They can provide a listening ear and remind you they’re in your corner. 

But this is your pregnancy decision, and it’s important to have a healthy balance. If you’re wondering where to find accurate information about abortion, adoption, and parenting, we’re here to help. 

What’s Their Role?

You may have a strong group of friends or family members who have been by your side through it all. It’s essential to have people you can rely on throughout life’s unexpected twists and turns. 

When you share your pregnancy news, it’s understandable that loved ones can be shocked, confused, or disappointed. They likely care about you very much and wonder how this will affect your future. 

Setting boundaries is crucial. As you consider your pregnancy options, it’s imperative to realize that this decision affects you most. Think about whether you want loved ones to offer advice, and if so, the limitations that should be created.
