You have the legal right to choose the outcome of your pregnancy. But real empowerment comes when you find the resources and inner strength necessary to make your best choice. Here are some other options.
Options are good. Parenting, Adoption or Abortion are the three options any woman has when faced with a pregnancy, planned or not. Of course, none of these choices is an easy one to make. Your choice is one you have to live with the rest of your life and can impact several other lives.
Choosing to continue your pregnancy and to parent is very challenging. But with the support of caring people, parenting classes, and other resources, many women find the help they need to make this choice.
If you are facing an unplanned pregnancy and considering an abortion, take a serious look at adoption. Many women feel it would be too difficult to carry a child and then release it for adoption. Because of this, they do not even research what adoption truly is. Today open adoption can be so much easier than adoptions of the past when you did not know where your child was or how they were doing. In an open adoption, you can get pictures and letters and experience seeing your child growing as opposed to the loss of a child's life and the constant wondering, doubt and sadness experienced so often when abortion is chosen.
With abortion there is no chance at a future here on earth with that child and the possible physical and emotional scars that you may be left with can be devastating. There is help available during your pregnancy and there is always a possibility of being in that child's life in the future. Adoption truly is a selfless act. You have the opportunity to select the home that your child will be placed into and give the gift of life to that child and to parents that are ready to be parents.
