I Don’t Want to Be Pregnant. Is Abortion My Only Option?

Unplanned pregnancies can be scary, especially when trying to figure out all of your options. While it may seem like you either have to continue your pregnancy or seek an abortion, you have other options as well. 


An option that many women find is the right choice for them is to make an adoption plan. When making an adoption plan there are several options available, depending on what you would like or what your current situation is. 

Closed Adoption: Closed adoptions typically keep the biological mother’s information completely anonymous with legally sealed identification documentation. With closed adoptions your confidentiality is secure.

Semi-Open Adoption: This option often gives you the opportunity to communicate with the child and the adoptive family through a third-party person. With semi-open adoptions, you create a plan for when and how much communication happens. 

Open Adoption: Open adoption allows for completely open communication between you, the child, and the adoptive family. Some women prefer open adoption because it allows the child to learn more about their family backgrounds as these questions come to mind throughout their lives.


Some women feel that parenting is the best option for them. The decision to become a parent is often filled with many questions, anxiety, and even fear, but this is completely normal.  

Many women who choose to parent discover that they feel much more confident after learning more about it and obtaining good resources to become more prepared.
