What is Driving Your Fear?
Sometimes we wake up afraid of something for seemingly no particular reason. But often there is something driving our fear. When faced with such thoughts and feelings, we have choices about how to respond. When it comes to being afraid of abortion, you may find it helpful to dig a little deeper into the reasoning behind it. Sometimes, when we’re afraid of something we should note the fear before we move forward. While fear is a normal part of the human experience, sometimes fear is trying to tell us something.
Learning More About Abortion
Perhaps your feelings are influenced by a family member or friend. Or maybe you have some of your own qualms about abortion whether because of your values or a past experience. If you’re worried or doubting this choice, you may want to do a little research into abortion procedures. Knowing what you’re getting into may help you decide one way or the other. Meeting with your healthcare provider or somebody like a pregnancy consultant can give you updated information about abortion.
Considering Other Options
Right now you feel like you have no choice but abortion. A variety of circumstances could be influencing this feeling. However, if you are having doubts, worries, or second thoughts about abortion, it could be crucial to take a moment and think about your other pregnancy options. While each option has challenges associated with it, there is a multitude of resources and support available to you. While adoption or parenting might feel impossible right now, it can be helpful to take time to learn more about each option so that you make a fully informed decision going forward. Many women have faced this same seemingly impossible choice and made it through. You can too!
