Choosing to have an abortion or place your child in an adoptive family can seem impossible, especially if you feel many factors are out of your control. That’s why you must get the information you need to make an informed decision and receive all the facts about these options. 

Making this decision can be daunting, but with the proper support, you’ll be well on your way to deciding with confidence. 

What Do I Need to Know About Adoption?

Before deciding to pursue adoption, you need to arm yourself with the facts and ask yourself some questions, including:

  • What do I already know about adoption?
  • Am I interested in an open, semi-open, or closed adoption?
  • What frightens or worries me about adoption?
  • What resources are available to help me through this journey?

Asking yourself these questions will help you pinpoint what information you need the most and explore options. Adoption has changed a lot in this day and age; now, there is a variety of plans to suit your lifestyle and specific needs, such as:

  • Open adoption: You can participate in every step of the process in an open adoption. You can choose the adoptive family and openly communicate with them and the child through written letters, phone calls, or visits.
  • Semi-closed adoption: Communication between you and the adoptive family still occurs, but a third party, like an adoption agency or attorney, handles everything.
  • Closed adoption: This option is best if you value your privacy and wish to remain anonymous. With this option, no communication exists, and the courts seal all identifying records.

If you choose adoption, there is help available to you. Life’s Choices Women’s Clinic has a network of professional adoption agencies you can choose from and free educational resources.

Abortion: Arm Yourself with the Facts

Abortion is a major medical decision with both mental and physical consequences. Take care to be informed before making this choice.

There are two forms of abortion, medical and surgical. Each procedure can only be performed within a certain gestational period (the length of your pregnancy), and each carries its own side effects, risks, and potential complications. 

Before undergoing any abortion procedure, confirm important pregnancy details and protect your health by having a limited obstetric ultrasound. An ultrasound can tell you your pregnancy’s gestational age, viability (if the pregnancy is progressing), and location. These details will confirm your eligibility for an abortion and the type you can have. 

Before having an abortion, consider contacting a local pregnancy resource center to explore your options and ensure you understand the implications of an abortion procedure. It’s vital to stay informed!
