Your Pregnancy Options

Your Pregnancy Options

If you’re pregnant, you have three basic options to consider: Parenting your baby, placing your baby for adoption, or having a medical procedure called an abortion to end your pregnancy. We can help you decide which of these options is right for you and provide you with resources to support your decision.

What is adoption?

Adoption is a legal and permanent lifelong relationship between adoptive parent and an adoptee. Adoption is a permanent choice for birth parents. In a traditional adoption, birth parents are not related to the adoptive family. In a kinship adoption, a family member adopts the birth parent’s baby or child.

Can I parent my baby?

Parenting is almost always an option. If you’re worried about your living situation, family stability or have concerns about the cost of raising a baby, your pregnancy counselor will talk about resources that can help you parent your baby in a stable environment.

I’m pregnant and considering an abortion- can you help?

Yes. Abortion is a safe and legal medical procedure. If you’re pregnant and considering an abortion, visit the National Abortion Federation or Planned Parenthood. If you’re concerned about the cost of an abortion, contact the National Abortion Fund for financial assistance.
