When Abortion Makes Medical Sense

There are a variety of possibilities regarding your body, pregnancy, and abortion. Perhaps upon finding out about your pregnancy, you went to a gynecologist or other medical professional and they had words of caution about carrying your pregnancy to term. Maybe there is a possible risk to you or to your pregnancy and they suggested abortion as a way to mitigate that risk.

Hearing all of this might have put even more thoughts, fears, or worries into your mind. It can be difficult to process all of this. And it’s tough to make a plan to go forward when you’re swamped with new information and decisions you never thought you’d have to make.

Perhaps you were looking forward to this pregnancy initially. But the thought of risk or having to go through abortion upsets you. You might feel alone as you navigate this road and wonder if there are any other possibilities out there.

Or maybe you’re okay with getting an abortion, but you feel like you still need more information, maybe about your condition or the types of abortion available to you.

Next Steps

Wherever you’re at in your pregnancy decision, it can be helpful to sit down with a professional such as a pregnancy consultant at a local pregnancy clinic. They are trained to listen to your worries, answer your questions, and provide you with factual information about your pregnancy and options.
