What Are My Options?
You have the legal right to choose the outcome of your pregnancy. Birth Choice exists to help people facing an “unplanned” pregnancy to make well-informed and practical decisions for their future. We provide hope by letting our clients know they are not alone. Clients are informed about methods and risks of abortion, options for adoption and parenting and fetal development.
If you are feeling pressured or your life goals are being challenged, you may be considering an abortion. Before you do, make sure you have all the facts. You deserve to know what is involved medically and how it may affect your future health.
Abortion is not a simple procedure. It can be a life-changing event with significant physical, emotional and spiritual consequences that can last a lifetime.
- Do you know there are different types of abortion procedures depending on the stage of pregnancy?
- Do you know all of the potential risks?
- What do you know about fetal development?
- Is there a point that it would be considered too late to have an abortion?

The thought of becoming a parent may seem overwhelming and difficult. You may feel this is not the time to have a baby. You may think, I’m too young, I need to finish school, how can I afford a baby, this was not part of my plan. There are challenges with every option in front of you. Yet, with the available resources and support, parenting might seem possible. Birth Choice offers parenting and pre-natal classes, referrals for free or affordable medical care, housing and financial support. We are here to encourage and support you throughout the pregnancy and beyond.
Our society does not view adoption favorably. Many think there are only two options…to parent or to abort. But, when you are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy adoption may be the absolute best option to consider.
Why? Because you can develop a birth plan that specifically meets your objectives. Adoption allows you to continue to pursue your life goals without long-term risks to your body or emotional health. It’s a way to gift a couple who deeply desires to have a family. Adoptions can be a loving option for birth mother, baby and adoptive family.
Adoptions can be open, semi-open or closed. You get to make that choice. In an open adoption you choose the family with whom to place your child. If you’re interested in learning more, Birth Choice offers resources for you to explore and research when you are ready.
