You are pregnant and want to know everything you can about the options you have. You have a right to know the truth. This downloadable booklet provides important information about the baby that is growing in your womb and the resources available to you during and after your pregnancy. You need good information in order to make important decisions about your pregnancy and your life. You have the right to make these decisions freely. No one else should make them for you.
No one can force you to have an abortion, not even your parents or the father of your baby. If you are feeling pressure (also called coercion) from someone to have an abortion, you have options. Talk to your doctor, counselor or spiritual adviser about your feelings, and ask for a phone to call 9-1-1 for immediate help.
If you are a victim of human trafficking (that is, if you are forced to provide labor or have sex for money), call the National Human Trafficking Resource Hotline at 888-373-7888.
