No one wants to go through the experience of an abortion. While it is a very personal choice, it doesn’t make it any less difficult.
Yet, there are other options you can consider, especially if you don’t want another abortion. Keep reading for details about alternatives to abortion.
Adoption is a rewarding alternative that has multiple benefits. It allows you to keep your freedom while giving a loving and caring couple their dream to complete their family.
Did you know that you can also receive financial assistance when choosing adoption? This frequently includes covering the costs of your medical bills, such as prenatal and postpartum care, and can even help provide maternity clothes, food, housing, and more.
You’re In Control
An added benefit is that you are in complete control throughout the adoption process and can choose how much (if any) involvement you want in the child’s life.
Generally, there are three types of adoption scenarios to choose from:
- Closed Adoption: No communication between you and the child with all records and identifying documents are legally sealed
- Semi-Open: Limited communication (as much or as little as you want) can exist between you and the child, but a third party helps distribute it.
- Open Adoption: Open communication between you, the child, and the adoptive family
Another option is parenting. You might already have been thinking of this option, but maybe you’re concerned about how to raise a child with family, work, or school. You’re not alone, and the truth is no one can ever be 100% prepared to raise a child, but that doesn’t mean it cannot be done.
Far from it! In fact, many women have found the support they need from work, family, friends, or government help to help provide for their children.
