Remember that the easiest choice may not ultimately be the best choice. Choosing to have an abortion, to parent, or to make an adoption plan is life-changing in itself. Let’s take a look at your three options…
While abortion may provide the most immediate relief from the pressures and fears of bearing a child, it may also present the highest level of risk: physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
Choosing to carry your baby to term and parenting him or her yourself. While parenting presents many challenges, it’s also profoundly rewarding. There are also pregnancy care services and resources available for you.
Choosing to give birth to your child and allowing another family to parent him or her can seem like a scary choice. There is a lot of information about this loving and mature decision. The process can be a little overwhelming, but there is help and support as you consider all the options available to you.
