Adoption vs. Abortion


Let’s get down to the basics here. If you’ve found yourself in an unplanned pregnancy you need to know all the information you could know about both abortion and adoption.


The Miriam-Webster dictionary defines abortion as,” The termination of a pregnancy after, accompanied by, resulting in, or closely followed by the death of the embryo or fetus.” Abortions can be performed by different methods- by surgery or medication. The type of abortion that is performed depends on the abortionist and how far along you are. Surgical abortions can consist of Vacuum Aspiration, D&C (Dilation and curettage), or D&E (Dilation and Evacuation). A medical abortion is a procedure where drugs are given, either by injection or taken orally, to end the pregnancy. Abortion ultimately ends with the death of the unborn baby but can also result in trauma (either physical or mental) for the woman. Abortion is a serious medical procedure that has many risks and complications. If you have found yourself considering abortion, call our office at (601) 469-1230 to schedule an appointment where a nurse can discuss abortion in more detail for you. You deserve to have all the accurate information available to you. The different types of abortions we’ve talked about have different methods of being completed, but they all have the same result: The death of the unborn baby.


Adoption doesn’t have a good rep- primarily because of inaccurate information. Adoption is not foster care. Adoption is when you provide parents for your baby. Adoption is NOT “giving up your child”, but rather, choosing to give life to your child. Many women who find themselves in an unplanned pregnancy either feel it is not a good time in their life to raise a child, feel they cannot afford or want their child to grow up with both a mother and father in the home to provide as much security for their child. Whatever your reason may be, Adoption can give you the option to provide for your baby- through a family who will willingly choose to love a baby as their own. Today, the birth mother can be included in all aspects of the adoption plan. You can choose the family that your baby will grow up with and you can choose whatever type of adoption you feel would be best for you and the baby. An open adoption will allow you to get to know the adoptive parents by having ongoing contact with them. This will allow you to get to know your baby and form a relationship with the baby and new family as the child grows. Semi-open adoption will allow you to choose the family for your baby, but a form of privacy remains in place. Letters and pictures can be sent from your baby’s family to you through the adoption agency you choose. Confidential Adoption may be an option for someone who wants to remain anonymous. The adoption agency will support you and select a family based on your wishes. Your identity will be protected. Adoption is an act of selfless love by choosing to give your child life which can be communicated to your child as he/she grows.
