Discovering a pregnancy when it wasn’t planned can send some women into a panic to find a quick solution. If that’s you, rest assured you have time to take a breath. It’s important to evaluate all your options before deciding how to move forward. 

You may have already begun to look into an abortion, but did you know adoption provides women with a similar outcome?

All About Abortion

An abortion can be performed medically or surgically as a means to terminate a pregnancy. 

Medical Abortion

Women who are no more than 10 weeks pregnant meet the qualifications for a medical abortion. As the name suggests, a medical abortion uses a combination of two medications: mifepristone and misoprostol. Mifepristone stops a pregnancy from growing, and misoprostol causes uterine contractions to expel it. 

Surgical Abortion

A surgical abortion is usually reserved for women more than 10 weeks pregnant. The process begins by dilating the cervix and then using either a vacuum device or forceps to remove the pregnancy. 

Both types of abortions have their pros and cons. Some women report feeling relief after an abortion while others have reported feeling regret and even depression. Being proactive in asking questions before committing to an abortion can protect you from unnecessary risks. 

How Does Adoption Work?

Adoption provides a solution for women who don’t feel ready to parent but aren’t certain abortion is the right choice for them. 

Women who choose adoption will be guided to an adoption agency and begin the process of selecting a forever family for their child. 

Many women who choose adoption are given financial assistance to help cover the expense of maternity clothes, housing, and prenatal appointments.

Adoption is not without its pros and cons, so it’s important to ask questions to understand if this is the best option for you.
