We have talked with many young women and their families. In the panic of learning of an unplanned pregnancy, they often think immediately of abortion as their only choice. For some, abortion is something they would normally disagree with. For others, it conflicts with their core values, but now it seems like the best or only way out of a difficult situation. Sometimes, someone is trying to force them into an abortion decision. If this sounds like you, you're not alone.

We are here to help you and to give you choices to consider. Taking the time to look at your other choices won't prevent you from an abortion decision. Taking the time to look at your other choices may prevent you from making a decision you will later find hard to live with. We would like to encourage you to take a look at options that give your child life and allow you the positive life-satisfying feelings that can come with parenting and adoption.
