What to Do if Someone You Know Is Considering an Abortion, Zanesville, Ohio

Pregnancies aren’t always planned, and the decision about what to do is a personal one. If someone close to you is handling an unplanned pregnancy and has told you she is considering having an abortion, you may not know what to say or do. You might be shocked, you might be saddened, but again, because this is such a personal choice, we here at Heartbeats in Zanesville, OH, suggest simply being as supportive of your friend as you can.

There are many reasons why someone may choose to have an abortion as a result of an unplanned pregnancy. A woman may feel like she won’t be able to take care of a child either emotionally of financially, or maybe a pregnancy could be dangerous to either the mother or the child. No matter the reason, it’s important to keep your own views and emotions regarding abortion out of the conversation.

abortionMaking the decision to have an abortion is never an easy one, so remember to think about how your friend must be feeling. Be there to support her and talk her through it. If you like, you can even offer to go with her to any appointments. If your friend is unsure about whether or not she should go through with the procedure, suggest consulting with a professional to discuss abortion alternatives before making any final decisions.

If she’s in Zanesville, OH, bring your friend to Heartbeats. We are a non-discriminatory pregnancy support center and will go over all the different options with her. We believe the ultimate choice of whether to have an abortion or go through with the unplanned pregnancy is up to the mother, but we want to make sure she is aware of all the choices available to her.
