Helping A Friend
Are you visiting this site to help a friend who may be experiencing an unplanned pregnancy? If so, they are very fortunate to have someone like you in their life that cares enough to help with information and support.
Your friend is probably very scared about a possible pregnancy. It could be that she’s experiencing panic and insisting that abortion is her only choice.
The first thing you should do is encourage her to confirm her pregnancy at local Pregnancy Resource Center. She doesn’t need to make any decisions until she is sure that she is pregnant. Please consider coming with her for the visit. Pregnancy Centers tests are free and we won’t tell anyone of your visit to their clinic.
Many of their volunteers have experienced an unplanned pregnancy themselves. They are caring and compassionate. They are not there to judge, preach, or condemn anyone seeking their help. When a client has a positive pregnancy test, they take the time to provide her with information about all her options – parenting, adoption, or abortion – and the support services they provide.
Many women initially feel like they have no other choice but abortion. With the information and services they provide, many realize that they have the ability to either single parent, get married, or make an adoption plan. If your friend is pregnant, please understand that her decision could affect you. If she wants an abortion, encourage her to take the time to investigate all her options and not rush a decision while she is still in a state of fear and panic.
This could be a moment in time that you remember for the rest of your life. Be sure to allow those memories to be “comfortable” by providing her with the best support available through these pregnancy centers. Help her to learn more about what a preborn child looks like: HERE
Regardless of your feelings about abortion, it’s best to offer your friend everything that can help her make an informed decision. Encourage her to visit our center and learn about all her options. In doing so you will be able to look back at this time and understand that you truly helped her in a time of need! If you are the father of the baby, visit our “For Men” page for more specific information.
