Thinking about getting an abortion? Don’t worry, you are not alone. In America, millions of unplanned pregnancies happen each year, for numerous reasons. Some of the reasons are health and safety-related, others are simply financial in nature. Out of the millions of unplanned pregnancies, 4/10 women will get an abortion. Statistics even show that 1 in 4 women will have an abortion before they are 30 years old.
Women should have a comfortable and supportive space to find refuge in difficult times. Pregnancy and what you decide to do with it is entirely your decision, and it is important that women know where to get help when faced with it.
Often times the decision is simple, but we understand that other times it is extremely difficult to make. Nonetheless, the decision should be entirely yours. Sometimes deciding to delay the next offspring is Wanting to be a good parent to the kids you already have. Adding more children to the mix is not always what is best for the children you already take care of.
You might be in an abusive relationship, or a victim of sexual assault. You also might want to finish school, or save money, and now is just not the right time. You can find yourself in a relationship with someone you don’t want to raise kids with. Or you can simply just not want kids. Regardless of the reason, women should find support and medical assistance with their decision to get the procedure done.
