We are here to listen to you. If you are considering abortion of the pregnancy, we want to help you understand your options and rights. It might be that we help you with get answers to your questions.
A study on abortion revealed this information:
In the U.S. each day, there are 4,000 abortions and 85% of women who had them said they felt as though they didn’t have any other choice. We are here to assure you – the choice is yours to make. You should receive answers to all of your questions before any decision is final.
When women chose abortion, 95% say the clinic gave them little or no information about the baby living inside of them. Your decision should not leave you with unanswered questions. As your advocates, we will help you get the information you deserve.
In the United States, 49% of pregnancies are unplanned and 50% of those pregnancies will end in abortion. Of all women who have had an abortion, 75% say they had the abortion because the baby would have interfered with their current life plan, 66% say they couldn’t afford the baby, and 50% said they didn’t want to be a single mother or were having relationship issues.
Mental health is affected by the decision to have an abortion: 85% of women who aborted report having negative mental health issues. Abortion is a women’s health issue, including mental health. When making your a choice for an unplanned pregnancy, get information about options for long-term counseling.
