Do you know that you really do have a right to choose?
When you hear that from us, that might be confusing if you know that we value all human life. But read on to find out why we believe we offer choices more than others…
We don’t believe that anyone should be pressured to terminate their pregnancy. And we give you a safe place to look at all of your options; the pros and cons, the risks, and to make sure you’ve have the chance to look at all of the information before you make a decision about your pregnancy. No judgement, no shame. We don’t coerce. Many women feel like the only choice they have is to terminate their pregnancy – kind of ironic to only have one choice, don’t you think? Listen to a quote from author Frederica Mathewes-Green when gathering information for her book, “Real Choices: Listening to Women, Looking for Alternatives to Abortion”.
…I went around the country talking to women who have had an abortion…I had presumed that most abortions are prompted by problems that are financial or practical in nature. But to my surprise, I found something very different…The core reason I heard was, “I had the abortion because someone I loved told me to…I needed a friend. I felt so alone. I felt like I didn’t have a CHOICE. If only one person had stood by me, even a stranger, I would have had that baby.”
So – yes – it really is up to you. You are the one who has to choose what you do with your pregnancy. And you will find compassion, hope, and help here at Pregnancy Decision Resources in Winchester, IN.
