  • An abortion is a medical or surgical procedure that ends a pregnancy by removing the fetus and placenta from the uterus
  • This could be done using medication or by a surgical procedure

  • If you are facing an unplanned pregnancy, take the time to inform yourself on all the options available, including adoption
  • If you are considering an abortion, take your time before rushing into a decision that you cannot reverse
  • If you choose to keep the baby, we know of one organisation, LifeLine, who will support you and assist you in whatever you may need, during the pregnancy and after birth. They offer material support, as well as a shelter/ home if you need a place to stay
  • Adoption is another option if you do not feel ready to keep the baby. LifeLine will also help guide you in the adoption process. They will accompany you as well as put you in touch with agencies that are equipped to handle adoptions.

  • Inform yourself fully about the procedure – medical or surgical
  • Check out the risks involved in medical or surgical abortions
  • Consider the other consequences, more than the physical ones. See above for these other risks you may face by having an abortion
  • Speak to anyone you trust, maybe a doctor
  • You may wish to speak to a pregnancy support centre to understand your options clearly e.g. LifeLine.
