If you are facing an unintended pregnancy and feeling pressured to choose abortion, you are not alone.
A study from the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons found that almost three-quarters, 73 percent, of women who had an abortion admitted feeling pressured to end their pregnancy.
The pressure to choose abortion can come from family members, friends, societal pressures, and perhaps the biggest source of pressure, from intimate partners.
Care Net, a national Pregnancy Resource Center organization, conducted a study that found approximately 38 percent of women said the father of the baby was most influential in their decision to end their pregnancy.
You can receive help and support if you are feeling pressure to abort.
One of the most effective ways to process an unintended pregnancy is to enroll in prenatal and parenting classes.
We offer these free classes to men and women to help them prepare to welcome their baby into their family and continue learning the ins and outs of parenting through every stage of parenting.
Pregnancy and parenting can feel overwhelming, but you are not alone.
