Is Abortion or Adoption Right for Me?


It can be hard to see clearly when faced with such a serious decision as a pregnancy decision. You are not alone.


If you’re asking yourself whether abortion or adoption is right for you, here are some things to consider with each option. Get the clarity you need about your options.

Abortion & What to Consider

Abortion is a medical procedure in which “the embryo or fetus is prematurely removed or caused to be expelled.” There are common physical risks to consider. Depending on the type of procedure, abortion risks may include:

  • Incomplete abortion, which may need to be followed by surgical abortion

  • An ongoing pregnancy if the procedure doesn't work

  • Heavy and prolonged bleeding

  • Digestive system discomfort

  • Infection

  • Fever

Some other risks can consist of:

  • Injury to the uterine lining or cervix

  • Uterine perforation

  • Hemorrhaging

A study published by the National Library of Medicine states, “Some women do have significant mental health issues that are caused, triggered, aggravated, or complicated by their abortion experience.”

Abortion can impact women both physically and mentally. Be informed so you can make a clear decision and protect your health.

What About Adoption?

Adoption isn’t without its challenges. You may have many pre-conceived thoughts about adoption and the process, but it has greatly improved over the years. 


Birth mothers have three options: open, closed, and semi-open adoption. If you desire a relationship with your child and the adoptive family, an open adoption could work for you. If privacy and distance are best for your situation, a closed adoption is for you.

Speaking with a professional about your adoption options and what might be right for you is essential to getting the clarity you need.
