Finding out you’re unexpectedly pregnant again can make it feel like your world has turned upside down. And if you’ve had a previous abortion and don’t want another one, all the stress and anxiety you’re feeling is understandable.

However, it’s important to know that abortion isn’t your only option. Your other pregnancy choices include parenting and adoption. While only you can decide what pregnancy decision is right for you, learning more about your options and the available support can help.

How Can I Decide What Option Is Right for Me?

When thinking about your pregnancy options, it’s essential to ask yourself the following question: If circumstances weren’t a factor, what pregnancy option would I choose and why? 

This question is critical because circumstances change, but your heart’s desire remains. If you have a heart to parent or desire to give your child a future, parenting or adoption might be the best choice. 


Adoption is a loving, selfless choice that gives your child hope and a future. When making an adoption plan, there are several options available, depending on your goals and desires:

  • Closed Adoption: Closed adoptions keep your identifying information completely anonymous, which means the adoptive family and child won’t know anything about you. This option is rare, but it might be best if you need to protect your identity. 
  • Open Adoption: As the name suggests, open adoption fosters open communication between you, the child, and the adoptive family. You get to decide how much communication you want and in what ways, and it also gives the child the opportunity to develop a relationship with you in the future.
  • Semi-Open Adoption: This is similar to open adoption, but instead, an adoption agency or attorney will mediate all communication.


Does parenting feel impossible right now? Sometimes, parenting can seem complicated, but if you have a heart to parent, you owe it to yourself to explore this option. 

If you are worried about finances, support, and pursuing your goals, know that resources are available to help.
