If you are pregnant, you have three options. It is important that you educate yourself on each of these options before making a decision. Real empowerment comes when you find the resources and inner strength necessary to make your best choice. Please call us to make an appointment so that you can receive the information that you need.
If you chose to parent, this time may be filled with a lot of uncertainty. However, there are many ways we can help you learn how to be the best parent you can be. We use a program called "Earn While You Learn" that helps you to understand what to expect in pregnancy and beyond. With each lesson that you complete, you will earn points for baby supplies and other materials.
You may decide to make an adoption plan for your child. Each year over 50,000 women in America make this choice. Making an adoption plan gives you lots of options. You can choose a family and decide how involved you want to be. It is all up to you. This loving decision is often made by women who first thought abortion was their only option.
Abortion is a surgical procedure that will end pregnancy. There are several different types of abortion depending on the stage of pregnancy. We will be happy to provide you with medically accurate information on the different types of abortion.
Like all surgical procedures, there are serious physical risks involved. These risks include:
- Heavy bleeding
- Incomplete abortion
- Tearing of the cervix
- Allergic reaction to drugs
- Scarring of the uterine lining
- Perforation of the uterus
- Damage to internal organs
There are also long terms effects that could take place, such as:
- Scarring or other injury during an abortion that may prevent or place at risk future wanted pregnancies
- Greater risk of miscarriage for women who abort their first pregnancy
- Possible increased risk of breast cancer
