Become well-informed before choosing to have an abortion
The choice for an abortion is not made thoughtlessly or easily. Women choose abortion for varied and deeply personal reasons. Many women find it helpful to discuss the decision with their partner, a family member, a close friend, their doctor, a clergyman, or a counselor. This personal issue calls for empathy and understanding in a non-judgmental atmosphere.
