Whether you feel outside pressure or pressure you’ve put on yourself regarding abortion, it is not your only option. You have two alternatives that offer a journey of hope for your pregnancy. Keep reading to learn what they are.

You Have Two More Options

You have more than one option when it comes to your pregnancy. You don’t have to feel stuck or pressured into abortion if you don’t want one. 

1. Adoption

Maybe you are hesitant about the adoption option because you feel uninformed. Our team at the Southern Ohio Pregnancy Center is here to give you more information about all three types of adoption: open, closed, and semi-open adoption.

Open adoption is the most common type of adoption, as it gives you the most opportunity to build a long-term relationship with your child and the adoptive family. You and the adoptive family will decide when visiting hours are, what type of contact is made, etc.

Choosing adoption could be a great option for you if:

  • You’re not ready to parent
  • You don’t want an abortion
  • Your living circumstances are not safe for a child right now
  • You desire to provide a financially and emotionally stable environment

Talk to us today to express your concerns and ask questions. We are here to inform and equip you for what’s to come.

2. Parenting

Though parenting can seem intimidating, you may not know what kind of support exists. It’s a journey of sacrifice but also great love and joy.
