Are you completely shocked about an unplanned pregnancy? You are not alone. It can be hard to make a pregnancy decision at this moment. Consider taking a moment to learn about all your options.
If you know you are not ready to parent, here is more information about both abortion and adoption so you can make an informed decision for your future.
What is Abortion Like?
An elective, voluntary abortion terminates a viable pregnancy. There are different types of abortion procedures that come with unique risks. The Mayo Clinic shares, “Talk with your health care provider to get answers to your questions, help you weigh alternatives, and consider the impact the procedure may have on your future.”
Talking to a medical provider you trust or a pregnancy center to understand your options can prove helpful and comforting.
You deserve to know the risks, complications, and side effects of all abortion procedures, and protecting your health should be a top priority for your health provider.
What is Adoption Like?
Adoption is not easy, like any other pregnancy option. Adoption is, however, a great opportunity for women to give their child a hopeful future and an adoptive couple a chance to become a family.
Adoption has greatly improved over the years. There are multiple options women have in the adoption plan they choose. These include:
- Open Adoption: You and the adoptive family make a plan and decide how involved you will be. You have the opportunity to be very engaged and participate in regular visits.
- Semi-Open Adoption: Communication is regulated by a third party for you, so you can decide how much contact you participate in.
- Closed Adoption: You remain completely anonymous, and all identifying records are legally sealed.
