Unwanted Pregnancy

Discovering you are pregnant when you don't want to be can be one of the most terrifying moments in your life.  What can you do?  What are your options?  Should you keep the baby and give it up for adoption or should you abort the baby?  What are the pros and cons of each choice and how can you decide what to do?  Welcome to our sub section on Unwanted Pregnancy where you can get all of the answers to your questions about what to do when you suddenly find yourself pregnant.


One option for dealing with an unwanted pregnancy is to consider adoption.  There are many benefits of adoption such as providing an infertile couple with the child they are unable to produce themselves or the ability to be able to balance your desire to carry through your pregnancy and your worry that you are just not yet ready to become a mom.  Also, read our helpful article on what questions you should ask when choosing adoptive parents so that you can be sure that your baby is going to a good home.


Another option for dealing with an unwanted pregnancy is abortion, or the termination of your pregnancy.  Many women are just not ready for the physical and emotion repercussions of being pregnant.  Find out what you need to know before choosing abortion, such as abortion methods, how to choose an abortion doctor, the psychological effects of abortion, and about the non-invasive herbal abortion.  Learn more now about how you can have a safe abortion. 

How Can You Decide?

Making a decision about how to handle your unwanted pregnancy will not be easy.  For each individual there are many things to consider and no right decision will be the same for everyone.  Deciding what is best for you can be very stressful and confusing.  Consider visiting a pregnancy center and talking with a trained counselor for free so that you can have as much support as you need when deciding what is best for your body.
