All different kinds of people for all different kinds of reasons come to Abiding Care. You may be unaware of what Abiding Care even does. Here is the top 5 reason why people choose Abiding Care as their first step when facing an unplanned pregnancy.
1. To Confirm a Pregnancy
Most people come to us to find out if they are for sure pregnant. They may be late for their period and suspect a pregnancy or have even taken a home pregnancy test but want to be sure. An O.B. Ultrasound, read by a doctor, is the best way to truly confirm your pregnancy and find out how far along you are. That’s exactly what we offer – at no cost. When trying to work through your options, this is necessary information to have. We also check for an ectopic pregnancy or miscarriage, as your body may already be making the pregnancy decision for you.
2. To Get Abortion Information
Some are considering abortion and want to make sure they know all they need to know first. Because we don’t provide or refer for abortions, we don’t profit from anyone’s decision, making us a safe place to get accurate information and ask all your questions – without any pressure. We are here for you no matter what you decide.
3. Because They Aren't Sure If They Want an Abortion
Some feel abortion is their only choice but don’t really want to have one. They often have many obstacles in their path or have people pressuring them to abort. We believe strongly that no one should ever feel pressured to abort (that’s actually illegal and we can help with that) or feel like abortion is their only option. Once a pregnancy is confirmed, we can help you come up with a plan that include resources and support. If someone is only choosing abortion because they lack resources and support then abortion is not a really a choice, it’s an act of desperation. We want to make sure every woman who doesn’t actually want to have an abortion, doesn’t have to have one.
4. To Have a Safe Place To Talk It Through
Many come to us undecided. Oftentimes they have taken an at-home pregnancy test and are panicked or confused. They are not sure who to tell or who to talk to. They often don’t want to go somewhere public like a hospital, but somewhere with minimal people where they are less likely to run into people they know. That’s what we provide – complete confidentiality. We deal with all different situations. Sometimes they need help and resources, other times they just need a little info, or some reassurance and a minute to catch their breath. We are a safe space.
