If you’re pregnant, you have three options:
- You can stay pregnant and become a parent, with or without the support of the other parent.
- You can carry the pregnancy until the baby is born and then give the baby up for adoption.
- You can have an abortion, terminating the pregnancy.
No matter what decision you make, be responsible and research everything you can about each of your options. Gather opinions from adults that you trust and seek medical care. You have the right to adequate, confidential healthcare.
The longer you wait to make a decision, the fewer options you may have. None of the options are easy, but you should find out as much as you can from several different agencies.
However, be careful when gathering information from agencies because many “crisis pregnancy centers” will not present all of your options and may have their own agendas.
Do not just “let pregnancy happen.” Be responsible!
