This pregnancy has changed your life and your decision will as well. For many women and men facing an unplanned pregnancy, abortion can seem like the only quick, confidential, and final solution. As with any life-changing decision, it is so important to give yourself some time to slow down, take a breath, and get information that can help you make a decision that you are sure of. An informed choice involves exploring all options, how each affects your whole being—physical, emotional, and spiritual—and looks at the present as well as the future.
As you think about abortion, consider these things:
• Before pregnancy became part of your situation, what were your thoughts and feelings about abortion?
• If you are feeling pressured or coerced by someone to do what they think is best for you, take a step back and talk with someone who will be supportive and on your side—helping you work through what you are thinking and feeling.
• Talk with someone who is trained to help those facing an unplanned pregnancy. You don’t need to figure this out alone.
