Your Options

OPTIONS - color_2pxborder








Before you make a choice, you need to understand your options.

If you are facing an unplanned pregnancy, you have a very important decision to make. We understand that you don’t need someone to tell you what to do. You need someone to give you honest answers so you can make an informed decision.

You do have choices, including:



We realize that it will not be an easy decision for you, but it is important to make sure that you know what all of your options are, before you make up your mind about how to deal with your unplanned pregnancy.
Abigail is here to help you through this process. We want to give you the information and support that you deserve, so that you can be confident in the decision you make.

Parenting

If you have already decided to parent your baby, we are here to provide you with practical help. Visit the “Our Services” page to find out about the resources we can offer you including baby and maternity supplies.

If you are still trying to decide whether or not to parent your child, we are here to help you find answers to your questions and concerns, because we understand that they are very real. Choosing to parent your child will bring along new responsibilities to you. We will be here to help you and direct you to other agencies who can give you extra support.

Adoption

Abigail is not an adoption agency but we can provide you with information about the adoption process and help connect you with local adoption agencies. If you decide that you are unable to parent, you can choose for your child to be a part of a loving family through the adoption process. The adoption process is very different today then it used to be. As the birth mother, you have a lot of freedom to choose the kind of adoption you want and how much interaction you will have with your child after the adoption.

We can share information and help you sort through your options so that you know you are making a good decision for you and your baby.

Abortion

If you are considering an abortion, we understand that you may be under a lot of stress. Before you decide, it is important for you to take the time you need to get accurate information about the abortion procedure.

Some women are not aware that abortion is a medical procedure. Just like any other medical procedure, there are physical and emotional side effects that some people experience. It is important for you to be informed about what affect it may have on your body.
