Even though many women view abortion as a “quick fix” to an unplanned pregnancy, is it really?
You’ve taken a home pregnancy test and it turned out positive. You panic – you don’t feel ready to be a mom and your relationship with the guy you’re dating is pretty new. You don’t know what he’ll do or say, but you’re pretty sure that, just like you, he’ll freak out! So, you look online for “Abortion in Wyoming” and come across “True Care Women’s Resource Center.” Umm…. You see where True Care provides information you need: (1) Am I really pregnant? (home tests aren’t always accurate, are they?) (2) If so, how far along am I? (that information determines the abortion procedure you would eligible for); and (3) Do I have an STD? (after all, you haven’t been with this guy all that long, you’ve not talked about previous sexual partners, and you’ve read where an untreated STD can affect your future fertility).
So, what do you do?
Get the Information You Need
Abortion isn’t really a “quick fix” to an unplanned pregnancy, and here a just a few reasons why:
- If you live in Wyoming, you have to travel out-of-state for an abortion procedure; that alone takes time and money.
- There can be physical and emotional side-effects to abortion.
- Money is needed for the abortion procedure.
Educate yourself on these things and take some time to breathe. Research for yourself and see how much risk you’re willing to take. You have time to consider all your options and who your support system would be if you choose abortion and also if you choose to carry-to-term. True Care provides options education on all three pregnancy options, and you can weigh the pros and cons based on your situation. True Care can also provide you with resources that you may not know about. For example, if you’re unemployed or wanting to start a career, did you know both Casper College and Climb Wyoming provide career-training opportunities for single moms? And, if you’re concerned about a medical issue and don’t have a doctor, True Care can refer you to physicians in and around the community.
