It seems everyone has an opinion these days. Social media allows us to say whatever we think whenever we want. The trouble is sometimes the advice we receive isn’t helpful. 

When facing a decision as serious as having an abortion, you need the support of close friends and family who have your best interests at heart.

The professional, caring counselors at the Pregnancy Resource Center can also help you. We’re ready to listen and answer your questions. 

Who Can I Talk To?

A medical procedure as sensitive as abortion is usually not discussed between family and friends. Women may not want to share their abortion experience. 

The topic of abortion has also become a political and religious hot-button. Everyone has a different opinion, and the last thing you want to do is argue.

You need to rely on those you can trust. Your support system should listen to you and let you know they are there to support you, whatever you choose. 

Give your trusted loved ones time to absorb the news of your unexpected pregnancy. Initially, they may be shocked and disappointed. But with time, they will want what is best for you and your future.

How Do I Decide?

The decision of whether or not to have an abortion is yours alone. No one can legally force you to make a choice you do not wish to make.

The best way to make a confident decision is to look at your options. You have three: have an abortion, make an adoption plan, or choose to parent. Here are some things to be aware of:


Abortion procedures have the potential for physical and emotional risks. You need to understand the various methods, side effects to anticipate, and risks. Talk with your healthcare provider about the current medications you are taking and your current physical and emotional health. 


Making an adoption plan today is very different from previous decades. As an expectant woman, you make all of the decisions. You select the adoptive couple to raise your child and the future you want them to have. You also determine how much contact you wish to have with them as they grow.


Many services are available to help women parent today. From prenatal care to parenting education and material support, the Pregnancy Resource Center and our community can help you. Be sure to learn all that you can tap into.

What Should I Do First?

Before you make any decision, confirm your pregnancy first. We provide free, lab-quality pregnancy tests with a 99% accuracy rate. If your test is positive, follow up with a free ultrasound. You will also want to protect your health by testing for any sexually transmitted infections (STIs). 

An ultrasound verifies if your pregnancy is growing or if you have had a miscarriage. Experts estimate over one in four pregnancies end in a miscarriage. An ultrasound detects how far along you are, which is vital if you are considering the abortion pill method, and it provides other critical pregnancy information.

If you need a trusted, caring support system to help you make a pregnancy decision, we’re here for you. Although the Pregnancy Resource Center of Colorado does not perform or refer for abortion, we will give you factual information on all of your options.

Schedule an appointment for both pregnancy confirmation and a consultation. Let’s do this together.
