It’s Your Pregnancy

You may seek advice from your parents and want their input. This is a normal part of the parent-child relationship, but remember that making a pregnancy decision requires careful consideration of your future.

This decision will most affect you, so it’s crucial to think about what you want. Your parents likely care about your well-being and want you to be safe, secure, and stable. But pressuring you to have an abortion is never okay.
