Is Abortion My Best Option?



Have you had unprotected sex, missed your period, and wondered if you might be pregnant? If you answered yes to this question, below are several important things to consider. For the safety of your health, it is important that you are informed before making a final decision.

At Resource Health, we will provide you with accurate and honest information on pregnancy symptoms, abortion, adoption, parenting, STDs, and sexual health.


Before you decide – ask yourself the following questions:


Am I Pregnant?

You may have taken a pregnancy test at home and it showed up positive. It is important to remember that they are not always accurate. Verify your pregnancy with a medical professional to confirm the results are accurate. Organizations like Resource Health offer medical-grade pregnancy tests and life-confirming ultrasounds at no charge to you. Our medical professionals will confirm baby has a heartbeat and for your safety, how far along you are in the pregnancy.


Have I Considered Any Alternatives to Abortion?

Abortion may seem like your best option for your current situation but learning about your other options is in the best interest of your physical and emotional health. You want to feel empowered to make the choice that is best for you, for your baby, and for your future. It is important you talk with a professional who will lay out all your options before you with compassion and care. At Resource Health you are our number one priority. We inform, YOU decide.


Could Abortion Affect Me Later?

Do any of the following questions apply to you?

  • Are you being pressured or manipulated to have an abortion?

  • Are you feeling uncertain or having trouble deciding?

  • Does part of you want the pregnancy?

  • Do you feel the need to keep an abortion decision a secret?

If you answered YES to any of the questions above, be sure to talk to a professional about all your options before making your final decision. Knowledge is power. If you are still leaning towards an abortion decision, you will want to learn about the various types of procedures and the risks they present to your health.
