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

If you’re facing an unplanned pregnancy, you’re likely feeling overwhelmed and unsure of your future. Maybe you feel like abortion is your only option—but other options are available. These options are parenting and adoption. 

While abortion terminates your pregnancy, parenting and adoption involve carrying your pregnancy to term. Read on to learn more about how to choose between these different options—only when you know about all your choices can you truly make a confident decision moving forward.

How Do I Choose? 

When considering how to move forward with your pregnancy, it’s essential to ask yourself questions to help you decide what’s best for you and your situation. Some questions to consider include:

  • Do I understand the potential pros and cons of each option?
  • How would I feel if I were to choose abortion? Adoption? Parenting?
  • What might my future look like with each option?
  • Is there a choice I can’t live with? Why?
  • Where can I go to learn more about these options? 
  • Is there anyone I can talk to about these options?

While these questions can offer self-reflection and help you gather a picture of what might be best, sometimes talking to someone is the best way to sort through your feelings.

Do you have someone in your life whom you trust? Will this person listen without judging you or trying to force their opinion on you? If so, talking to them about your pregnancy options can help you gain perspective.
