For Abortion

In the event of an unplanned pregnancy, a woman may feel incredibly isolated from everything in her life. Even someone who is openly pro-choice may not stand for abortion, personally. While every woman has the right to make the decision she feels most comfortable with, the number of abortions have dropped considerably in the last decade.

what to do about an unplanned pregnancy is a choice that few women expect to need to make in their lives. And regardless of their choice, they will be advised to talk to a counselor about their decision. Being pregnant can be physically risky for younger women, who are more likely to miscarry or have a child before her due date. Certain abortions can also be physically harmful if done incorrectly.

For those who know they could never have an abortion, be it for the physical or moral risks involved or the expense, there are two other options for her and the baby. Both of the options require her to see the pregnancy to term. She can have the child and try to raise it as a single mother or she can place it with and adoptive family. Some women are simply not ready to parent, due to career or educational goals or for other reasons. While pregnancy is a 9-month commitment that can be socially stunting in particular for pregnant teens, it can give a life-long second chance to a child and a couple who may never have a chance to have a child without her decision to place.

There are emotional consequences to all three post-unplanned pregnancy options. Being for abortion, adoption or single-parenting are all equally valid choices as long as they're the right one for you.
