You took a test hoping nothing would come from it. But then that second line popped up and you’ve been in a tailspin ever since. What does this mean? What do I do next? Can I still get the abortion pill? What are my options? It seems to be a never ending list of questions.

There is a lot to take in. There is a lot to learn and figure out. It can feel overwhelming, but you are not alone. To help you decide what your next steps may be, we’ve laid out some details to hopefully answer a few of your questions.

YOU’RE PREGNANT! What does that mean?

That means:

  • An egg has been fertilized by a sperm.
  • A genetically unique human has been created.
  • Gender, hair, eye color, and much more have been determined.



  1. Confirm pregnancy by getting a pregnancy test and an ultrasound. An ultrasound will indicate how far along you are in your pregnancy. To schedule a free pregnancy test, click here.
  2. Make a fully-informed decision. This means exploring and understanding your different abortion options and parenting options.



  • Is performed by taking a series of pills or having a surgical procedure.
  • Both types will end the pregnancy by stopping the growth of the baby and removing it from your body.



  • Two medications are prescribed up through 10 weeks gestation.
  • The first pill is taken to cut off the life-line of the growing baby.
  • The second set of pills causes the uterus to contract and expel the baby and placenta.
  • Risks include heavy bleeding, infection, negative emotional response, or incomplete abortion which may result in emergency medical intervention.



  • Can be performed later in the pregnancy than taking abortion pills.
  • A suction tube is inserted into the uterus and the baby and placenta are suctioned out.
  • Risks include heavy bleeding, infection, physical damage to the uterus, and negative emotional response.



  • You create a family and help your child grow up healthy.
  • Co-parenting is an option even if mom and dad don’t live together.
  • Many community assistance programs are available to you to help with physical and financial needs.



  • Relationships with friends and family may change. You will have new responsibilities.
  • Additional finances are needed.



  • Often misunderstood, but can be seen as providing a better chance for your baby.
  • You can choose the family who will parent your baby.
  • You decide the level of communication between you and the adopting family.
  • In most cases, all costs associated with pregnancy are covered by the adoption agency.
