Your Choices – Abortion
If you’re considering visiting an abortion clinic, perhaps you’re thinking:
- I’m not ready to have a baby
- Someone is insisting on abortion
- I can’t tell people I’m pregnant
To begin with, no one can make you have an abortion. It is the law. We know how you feel. Many of the advocates working at our pregnancy clinics have been where you are. Many people have been where you are. You are not alone.
If you are considering abortion, you need to know if you are really pregnant first. According to the March of Dimes: As many as half of all pregnancies may end in miscarriage. Miscarriage is when a baby dies in the womb (uterus) before 20 weeks of pregnancy. This means you may not even need to have an abortion. Some pregnancy clinics offer free ultrasounds that can determine if the pregnancy is heading toward a natural miscarriage.
There are many kinds of abortions, and pregnancy clinics can help you understand the types that are available to you for your stage of pregnancy and the short term and long term risks to consider.
You have choices with your pregnancy, and these pregnancy clinics are there to help you understand your health and explain your all you options.
