Digging Deeper Before an Abortion Decision

Things can often seem one way on the surface, but as we dig deeper it can reveal a different story altogether. A relationship may seem fine on the outside, but is painful from the inside. We put on a happy face at work or school, but feel saddened with personal struggles at home. At first glance a situation may appear a certain way, but it might start to look much differently when we look further into it. An unexpected pregnancy can be one of these situations. On the surface it may seem like you only have one option, leading you to consider abortion. What happens when you dig deeper into your thoughts and feelings about abortion?

On the Surface of a Decision about Abortion

The surface of an unexpected pregnancy situation can often have a lot factors that might lead to the consideration of abortion. You’re too young, your partner isn’t involved, your family is already developed, your finances are unstable, or you don’t have a support system to continue the pregnancy. But what’s on the surface can change, or even mask what’s on the other side of a situation. Your financial situation could improve or resources might available that you aren’t aware of yet. Similarly, your initial feelings about an abortion might change or become conflicted as you look further into this option. As you learn more about the different abortion procedures and potential physical or emotional risks, you might begin to wonder if it’s your best pregnancy decision. Some might remain certain about having an abortion, while others may start to consider other pregnancy options, such as adoption or parenting. How can you dig deeper into your decision about an abortion?

Digging Deeper into Your Feelings about Abortion

Picture the ground’s surface on a path through a forest. As you begin on the path on the outer edge of the trees, the ground might be hard and dry. As you walk deeper into the forest, tree roots begin to pop up and leaves might blanket the path. You’re suddenly immersed into a completely different area than where you first started out. Sometimes it takes a deeper look to reveal more.

On the surface, your unexpected pregnancy situation might seem like so much is pointing to an abortion. Digging deeper into your decision might not feel possible at this point.

You might face tough emotions like fear, doubt, stress, or anxiety that reinforce your thoughts on abortion. You might also find uncertainty, conflicting emotions, or gain a different perspective about having an abortion. You could reveal inner desires to continue a pregnancy, or find ways to handle potential feelings after an abortion.
