If you’ve just found out you’re pregnant, you might be wondering about your options.
In Canada, people have the right to consider all three options; adoption, parenting, and abortion. People have different feelings about these options, so focus on what feels right for you.
Deciding which option is best for you may be difficult and stressful. If you need support or if you would like to talk about your options, contact us. Centre for Sexuality talks openly about all three options, but does not provide advice.
Whether or not you seek support at this time, remember that you are the only person who can make the final decision about what to do, and your decision must be voluntary. No one has the right to try to pressure or force you into parenthood, adoption or abortion against your wishes.
Many people describe this decision as needing careful thought and consideration. The following questions are intended to help you think about some of the issues you might want to consider when making your decision. There are no right or wrong answers to these questions. Your answers are right for you – and may help you in deciding whether you want to become a parent, make an adoption plan or end the pregnancy.
