What are My Options If I am Pregnant
Let’s be honest, an unplanned pregnancy is scary. It can be life-changing and there are so many big decisions to make. The truth is, there is one thing that every unplanned pregnancy has in common. When faced with an unplanned pregnancy, every woman has three options (and only three options) and choice has to be made. In alphabetical order the options are; abortion, adoption, and parenting.
What are my options?
- Abortion- Abortion is an option to end the pregnancy. There are two basic types: a medical abortion or a surgical abortion.
- Adoption– Placing for adoption means that the baby will be born, but it will not be raised by its biological parent(s). You can have an open adoption, a semi-open adoption, or a closed adoption.
- Parenting- Parenting means that the baby will be born, and the biological parents will raise the child.
