Think you’re pregnant? Or perhaps you know for sure, and you feel your life is over. You may think that abortion is the answer – maybe people you’ve confided in have told you abortion is the only way.
Don’t let anyone pressure you into a hasty decision. Abortion is not the “quick fix” solution it’s made out to be, as thousands of women who’ve gone down that route can tell you. Abortion ends the life of the baby growing inside you and is a decision that can never be undone.
Now is not the time to be alone. There are caring people who can help you every step of the way. They offer friendship, understanding, and complete confidentiality. And no pressure to do something you don’t want to do. For help and unconditional support, call one of the numbers listed below.
The groups here also provide free counselling to women suffering the aftereffects of abortion.
