Is Abortion Right For Me?

Abortion Is Not The Only Option | Unplanned Pregnancy

Every woman’s situation is unique and nobody will be able to tell you what to do in this moment.

An unplanned pregnancy or unwanted pregnancy can be an incredibly stressful event.  At this time, you may be feeling overwhelmed or even scared. It can be hard to move forward when you don’t even know how you feel.

Here are some questions that you could ask yourself as you sort out your feelings:

  • Why am I contemplating getting an abortion? Is somebody manipulating me into this decision?
  • Am I ready to be a parent?
  • What would it mean for my future if I terminated this pregnancy?
  • Do I have the proper parent skills to parent this child(ren)?
  • Could I handle the emotional effects of an abortion?
  • Would I consider placing my child for adoption?
  • Do I have all the facts about abortion?
  • Am I ready for the possible physical side effects of abortion?
  • Am I able to pay for the costs of an abortion?
  • Am I willing to seek out parenting resources such as a parenting website, read parenting articles or take parenting classes?

Think carefully about these answers. You may want to go over these questions and other concerns or questions you may have with someone you trust such as a friend, parent, ecclesiastical leader or your partner.
