It’s essential to make your own pregnancy decision without letting your family or friends make you feel pressured into one choice over another. Your mental health depends on it.

According to a study, women who feel at all pressured into an abortion are more at risk for experiencing depression, anxiety, or other adverse mental health outcomes.

If you’re feeling pressured into getting an abortion, there are strategies you can take to ensure you’re making your own choice, free from that pressure.

While this article will highlight these strategies, contact Pregnancy Care Center if you want to talk to someone about your pregnancy and learn more about free services that are here to help. All appointments and resources are free and confidential.

Learn All You Can About Your Pregnancy Options

Knowledge is power. By learning all you can about your pregnancy options, you will be empowered to make the best decision for yourself—and you will feel strong enough to stand up to anyone who tries to pressure you into a decision you disagree with.

Your pregnancy options include parenting, adoption, and abortion. While only you can decide what option is best, the following questions can help you get started on thinking through your choices:

  • What option am I leaning toward and why?
  • What are my biggest questions/concerns about each option?
  • Do I know the risks associated with abortion?
  • Do I have a desire to parent?
  • What might my life look like if I choose parenting? Adoption? Abortion?
  • How might I feel if I choose parenting? Adoption? Abortion?

Before making any pregnancy decision, you must ensure all your questions are answered. At Pregnancy Care Center, we’re here to give you accurate information about your options and the space to ask questions.

Make Your Decision Before Talking to Family and Friends

Your family and friends will likely have their own opinions about what you should do next. This is why it’s essential to make up your mind before talking with them further. This will help ensure that you don’t let your family or friends make you feel pressured and that you’re able to stand firm in your decision.
