Did you know that around 50% of all pregnancies in the United States are unplanned according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC)?  No wonder many pregnant women find themselves overwhelmed and confused.  Knowing your options is a good place to start when making a pregnancy decision.

Let’s take a look at what options are available for women who are pregnant.

Three Pregnancy Options:

  1. Parenting
    Parenting involves carrying the baby for nine months and committing to loving and raising your child.
  1. Adoption
    Adoption involves carrying to term and creating an adoption plan.  This choice allows you to place your child in a loving home of your choosing.
  1. Abortion
    Abortion is a choice to end the pregnancy.  See https://www.cummingwomenscenter.org/considering-abortion/ for information on abortion procedures.

If you find yourself feeling overwhelmed, know that you are not alone. It may take a while to figure out what is the best decision for you.  As you think through your options, consider what it would look like for YOU to choose parenting, adoption, or abortion.
