Is Abortion The Right Option for Me?
Making an abortion decision can lead to a lot of self-reflection. What are my reasons for thinking about discontinuing the pregnancy? How will I feel about my choice in the future? Who can I talk to that can counsel me through my decisions?
It’s common for women to experience a bit of anxiety in this stage. You have not followed through with one of your options yet. This means the outcome still appears uncertain. Not knowing what is to come can be scary. There are a lot of things to consider when thinking about abortion. But try to ask yourself: What can I control right now?
