Exploring your options with your unplanned pregnancy: Abortion, Parenting, and Adoption
There are two kinds of abortions in the US: surgical (in-clinic) abortion and the abortion pill (chemical/medical abortion). Learning the facts about abortion (types of abortions. their costs, and their risks) will help you make an informed decision regarding your unplanned pregnancy.
The type of abortion performed is directly related to the fetal development stage at which you seek the service. If you are seeking an abortion you need to know how far along you are...and it is best if you can receive these medical services and this information from someone who doesn't have a financial interest in your decision.
This is why MyLife Medical Center provides lab-quality pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, STD/STI testing, options counseling, and community referrals---all at ZERO cost to you.
Did you know:
- 1 in 5 pregnancies will end in miscarriage
- You should not seek an abortion until you have a confirmation from an ultrasound that the pregnancy is viable.

But remember: this is YOUR decision and we are here to help you make this decision, without pressuring you or rushing you.

Did you know that over 80% of adoptions are open adoptions? What does that mean? A large majority of adoptions today include the birth mother and/or birth father in the life of their child even though they place that child with another family through adoption. The degree of "openness" can be pre-arranged between everyone involved. No longer is a baby whisked away from its birthmother and never seen again. (Unless that is what the birthmother wants)
When you are dealing with an unplanned pregnancy and you feel that you are not ready to parent, adoption is an option! Adoption allows you to place your baby in a home that IS ready and willing to take on the role of parenting, while you continue with your personal goals and dreams.
Did you know:
- You can choose the family.
- You can choose if it is an open or closed adoption
We offer options counseling and referrals to help you find the right adoption agency to meet your needs.
The only good choice is a well-informed choice. Explore all of your options before making a decision. We are here to help you explore those options . Make an appointment today. Call: 636.495.6566
