If you’ve recently been faced with an unexpected pregnancy, your mind may be racing with questions. Questions like, “What are my options? Where can I go? How do I move forward?”.  Or you might still be in shock, wrestling with foreign emotions, and at a loss for what to do next. Sleep may not come easily, and your thoughts may be clouded during the day.

If this sounds familiar, you may have thought about abortion as your solution.

Taking The Time You Need

Abortion can be a life-altering decision for many women; it can cause them to later struggle with intense emotions that are difficult to deal with alone or with their mental wellness. That’s why we encourage women contemplating an abortion to take the time and space they need to uncover their feelings, what might be right for them, and their unique stories.

No one should make you feel forced to make this decision, this is your choice, and you need to feel confident and comfortable with your decision.

There are two main types of abortion procedures:
