Being informed on all of your options empowers you to make a choice you can live with. Regarding the option of abortion, it is important to note that there are two types: medical and surgical. The types of abortion that may be available depend on factors such as how far along a woman is in her pregnancy. Abortion is a physical procedure, and we can help you understand the risks associated with it.
Ultimately, you have the responsibility, and the legal right, to make the decision about your pregnancy. Though many people in your life (such as your parents and boyfriend/husband) care about you, no one can force you to have an abortion.
If you, or someone you know, has had an abortion in the past and has, or is, experiencing the feelings listed above, Care Net offers compassionate and confidential support designed to help women (and men) work through these feelings. You are not alone.
